my friend and I moved out of our apartment a week before our lease was up, but we just simply didn't return the keys or let the apartment complex know, thinking they'd just charge us for it if needed. Now, we are being charged 250 dollars as a prorated amount for the days after the lease was up that we didn't let the management know that we had left.
The rent charge was the pro-rated rent for every day after 2/27 that the apartment remained in y’alls possession. Unless the keys are turned in or the resident confirms in writing that they have vacated the unit we cannot legally take possession of the apartment. For that reason you were being charged rent until I received the email confirmation from you that y’all have in fact vacated the unit.
Even though it is not a high amount, I am not fully willing to pay it because we weren't there.
I would appreciate any advice.
