cannot pay rent
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
We live in Missouri. Our lease in our apartment is not up until this coming June. We no longer can afford to live here so we called our landlord and asked her if we can get out of our lease. She said that if we paid her 2 months worth of rent and she keeps the deposit she would lets us. Well, we can't afford to pay the regular rent, so there is no way we can pay 2 months worth to get out. My husband says we should just abandon it and send her the keys. What can she do if we decide to do that?
