i am moving back to PA from NC. I just moved into a new apartment been here for maybe 3 or 4 weeks. i signed a 12 month lease for 5 grand, or 417 per month. I am moving, there is no debate here, and it absolutely must happen...but paying 5g's for an empty room for a year is unacceptable. I talked to the chick that runs this place, who seems aright, and she says i cant break the lease and the only thing to do is sub-lease or find someone to live here for the price. Either way she doesnt seem to care as long as she gets paid. Tomorrow im going to take my lease and read over it very slowly and carefully to see if i can find a way out. People have said screw it in the past and tried to leave....they got sued, so thats out. This one guy went to iraq and he was getting damned summons for civil court in NC cuz he was called to iraq and wasnt paying his lease, so they are nazis about it. im def going to plaster my campus with ads, but in the meantime if anyone can think of a way to get out of this i would be very very appreciative.
