I would just talk to your current management firm and explain that you will be paying rent through the end of the lease period, but are planning to move due to commuting reasons.  If they’re in Chicago, they should understand how awful traffic is. 

Ask them (nicely) to answer the inquiry, and hopefully they’ll listen, especially since you’re going to be paying rent to the end of your lease anyways.

I don’t quite understand what a “denial on her inquiry of you guys as tenants” was. That said, as a courtesy, I would let your landlord know that you will be moving. In some states, when a lease term ends, the lease automatically becomes month-to-month which may have certain notice terms attached to it. Not sure whether that’s the case for Illinois. Either way, if your landlord has been a good one, I do think that you should provide some type of notice.

My two cents for what they’re worth.

Do you mean the new landlord wanted to talk to the current landlord to see if you are good tenants?

The new landlord may have been denied by the current landlord because of privacy issues. Some landlords require you to give them permission before they will talk about you to others.

You can try to request the form but I think making your own form works too.  I would suggest either delivering a notice in person and havin the office date stamp its receipt or something so you have writen proof that they did receive it.

Ahhh the joys of renting.  Glad you got it taken care of… The new place is beautiful though, hopefully (and I think so) it will be worth it!

I’m glad it’s worked out. Having 1 month overlap seems like a good idea, we’d planned on a 15 days overlap ourselves, thank goodness the sellers agreed! 

We’re renting from a large management firm that has a standard 3-month lease ending July 1st. We had to give them our notice by the end of March and they did some odd things as well, like have in inspector come 2 days after we gave them notice to “look around” the apartment, though at the same time they kept repeating how we don’t need to clean up. In the end it worked out well since we weren’t charged extra for anything but it’s still odd considering we still have a few months to go.
