That should be acceptable as long as the landlord is okay with it (it's not bizarre).

First two things... Congratulations on the new job and I must note that I'm answering this question without reviewing your lease agreement. You may wish to consult an attorney with your lease in hand to get the most accurate answer to your question.
Having said that, I'd pose the reverse question to you. If your landlord were to find a new tenant he wanted to move in to your apartment one month earlier than your agreement stipulated, would it be fair for him to ask you to leave?
My guess is we'd both agree the answer is no. However if he found you a better apartment to move into a month earlier (at say lower rent, in a better part of town) you may be happy to oblige.
It seems your landlord has offered you a fair compromise to your situation. It may not be ideal for you, but perhaps with some additional effort on your part finding a replacement tenant, or a temporary subtenant (friend) who'd like to stay in your place for a month over the summer, you may achieve your goal.
Best of luck!

Generally speaking, management fees can vary based on a number of factors. If you will be responsibile for leasing and qualifying tenants, then the fees could be less. If, on the otherhand, you would like the management company to do this for you, in addition to responding to maintenance requests, paying property related invoices, etc., the fees could be greater.
Typically, fees can range from 4-10% of the gross monthly collected rent.
If you would like to speak in detail regarding your properties, feel free to contact me directly via email at email@example.com or via phone at (323) 718-1611.

A first time landlord should be careful of who they choose as a tenant, rather than quickly trying to get any old tenant in the unit. A quality tenant is easy to recognize if you know what to look for. Good credit history, sensible income and the overall package should be considered. Listing your rental with me, I pre-qualify all tenants to the up-most standards to ensure long lasting relationships and on-time payments.... more
If owner is in no hurry to sale the home, the best thing to do is offer an extended term. Try two years rather than one year at renewal.
It will also help if you have been a good tenant to begin with.
Keep your credit in order, some landlords will re run your credit at the lease renewal.

I do a lot of leasing and would be pleased if you considered me for your home. As part of the listing, I place the property in the MLS, add yard sign, make flyers, handle all showings in person at a moments notice, advertise in local print and vast online exposure. With any interested parties, we run credit, check references, employment, criminal records and once we have a well assembled package, I will present it to you. I handle all aspects of getting your property marketed and leased and you can go about your business until I have a ready to go tenant ready for you to, ok.
The fee for leasing with "quality" brokers generally is 8-10% based on the lease term. This covers both our fee and the tenants agents fee. For easy math sake... lets say your rental is 2500/mo and we lease the property for 12 months. Then we would take the 2500/month X 12 months (lease term) which equals $30,000 rental income for the year. @ 10%, the fee is $3000. $1500 for listing side and $1500 for tenants agent.
We can discuss this further in person if you like. I would be happy to assist you.

When you hire an agent to represent your listing you will get the best service by having them exclusively represent the property. You are also effectively hiring every other agent as well since they will offer compensation to any agent who brings a tenant. A non exclusive listing will not motivate any broker to work hard and market your lease. If they have to compete against another agent posting ads for the same property this will make a confusing situation. What if the same tenant calls both? They probably will. Short answer, there is no benefit at all to what you are suggesting and it will actually be a detriment to getting your property leased quickly and smoothly.
Please contact me for more info. I specialize in representing landlords and have more experience leasing single family homes than any other agent. I have a lot of great ways to help you secure a solid tenant for the best price and in a short period of time.

This may seem basic... but READ the WHOLE contract and understand it and get clarification if you do not understand it...
So many people just sign without reading... they could avoid any misunderstandings later on, after all the written contract is what is enforceable.... more
