They won’t let you break the lease at all? I know in our agreement, if we need to break our lease, we pay a month’s rent and give them 30 days’ notice.

You can just walk. It won’t be worth their time to take you to small claims court. If I had no other option, I would just abandon my security deposit and find a different place to live. They are a company, not a person. I don’t feel a real need to be peaceful with lease management companies. They typically have tremendous profit margins. It’s in their best interest to work with you. If they won’t, you’ve made excellent suggestions, and you should walk away knowing that life happens and that’s their mistake for not trying to show the place before you move.

But maybe make sure that you have offered these solutions in writing, not just verbally. That may be important.

What is the current renting market? I know in our area the market is really tight, so things go fast. Plus with spring coming up that improves your chances. Ask them how long their other units are staying empty.

@jb20:  You could post a listing and show it yourselves and when someone expresses an interest you can turn them over to your landlord to complete the rental process.  That is what we did in order to get out of a lease once.  Get it posted now because people are getting their tax returns back and using them to pay security deposits.

since you said you are willing to let them keep the security, honestly it seems like you can just walk. find your next place, and move there. you won’t get your deposit returned, but you are willing to part w this.
