Flashback to mid-May...
I went by the leasing office to find out what we would have to pay because we would be terminating our lease about a month early. Well, the leasing agent and assistant manager on duty told me the fee would be in my lease, but since I don't had a month and 3 days on my lease (after the date of my notice), I would probably only have to pay August rent and prorated rent for September. So I left the office to actually pen my 60-day notice.
I returned to the office a couple weeks later to actually turn in the 60-day notice and to get clarification on the early termination fee for my lease. You see, I had reviewed my copy of my lease and found an astronomical figure equal to two months rent. I had to be reading incorrectly! I don't even have 2 months left on my lease after my notice.
Lo and behold, the figure was correct. But God...
As long as I give a 60-day notice, I am exempt from the termination fee! I just have to pay July's rent as planned.
Cue holy dance!! I had to use some serious restraint to keep from shouting all over that ladies office. LOL.
Moral of the story:
- God is AWESOME!
- Read your lease carefully. I just missed the sentence about the 60 day notice.
With this new information and a thankful spirit, Kevin and I will prepare to move into my grandmother's
Until next time...
Happy Days! -Ashley
