Will I be liable for breaking my lease?
Over this weekend, my vehicle was broken into. A lot was stolen.
To be honest, I have not felt comfortable living in this place but I chose to because I was being cheap and preferred to save money. (Packrat) I am not accustomed to this class of people I am living with. Before this incident, I had never been robbed. I had this naive impression that all people are good, they just do bad things occasionally. I’m 32, and female.
My world crashed this weekend and I now see the environment I am in in a more realistic way.
I want to move. Now.
Is there some sort of real estate clause that allows a person to move without being bound to exit clauses in a lease? Mine requires 1.5 months rent if lease is broken. I will pay it if I have to but I don’t want to.
I live in Lansing, MI, if that’s any help. Resources would be greatly appreciated!
