I am paying $1206 a month in rent and will break my lease with 14 months left. My landlord wants to charge me $190 times the 4 months for what they call a "Concession". Furthermore they want to charge me an early termination fee of $1392. They also will charge me $1392 for each month that the apartment is not rented. In addition, they have put the apartment on market for $1444. Lets say it took them 2 months to rent it at a 12 month rate of $1444. Then they would make a $1444*12-$1206*14=$444 profit before charging me. After charging me they would make $1444*12-$1206*12+$1392+$190*4=$5006 profit. This is clearly illegal, right? Also, are they even allowed to rent it for more than I was renting it for? It seems to me even if they are allowed to rent it for a larger amount, I should then get that extra money credited to me (up until the balance I owe to them is 0). I also feel a lease termination is illegal. The cost of advertising and cleaning can not be argued to be $1392 unless I destroyed the place which I didn't. That $1392 figure is what they will charge even if they walk in and the place is perfectly clean already.
