Please post a topic on your website The free law firm and legal advice in Los Angeles, California I finalized a lease agreement with my landlord two weeks after I signed it. I threatened another roommate and I didn't feel comfortable living there. The landlord said she would let me leave as long as she found someone to take over the room because she's "too busy" to do that and since I broke the lease "that's my problem" so I've been paying the rent and utilities until now. Everyone he brings has a problem with him. The person is very young. The person is old. The person can't speak English he didn't want to deal with that. When someone is interested, they take over a week to respond when I give them the information. By then, the person has found another place. If she has questions she doesn't reach out directly but asks me to ask the
person. It is a waste of time.
She's expecting someone to sign a New Year's lease instead of taking my old one. Increased rent because she claims they increased it when I was declaring the amount I am currently paying.
At this point the only reason I paid was because she threatened to make my life miserable if I didn't. "If you know what's best for you, you'll keep pushing" If you keep pushing, she has no incentive to find anyone else. From what I've gathered, isn't it her responsibility to find someone as soon as possible to mitigate her losses if she won't let me sublet?
I understand the hiatus since I stop paying until you find a replacement that I take responsibility for. I don't have a problem with that. But with rent and utilities still being paid on time, there's no reason for her to find anyone. And she didn't. Is there anything i can do?
If you've made it this far, thank you for reading. I'm at my wits end.
