Karen Peyton answered:
Since the terms and conditions of your "original" lease agreement did not change with each new landlord, your lease agreement is alive and well. Any damages (liability) for breaking the lease is spelled out in the lease.

That doesn't mean you can't ask to move. If they agree, you want to be relieved of further obligation in writing and know what it's costing you (maybe your security deposit). On the other hand, it's already been 9 months - you're in the home stretch.

Good luck!

1. Make sure you have reliable references.
2. Always keep receipts or reliable records of rental payments.
3. Ask your previous o write you a recommendation as a tenant.
4. Know what your credit report says. So you can support or defend any thing that comes up.
5. Work with a lender to repair or bring up your credit score.
6. Check with a lender, you may qualify for a loan to buy instead of renting the payments could be lower in some cases.
7. Be sure to read the Lease & understand what it is saying. Read all small print.
8. Voice questions & concerns.
9. Have any agreements or changes in the lease put in writing so you are protected.
10. Many Lawyers & Realtors would be happy to go over the lease with you. Be sure you are protected before you sign the lease.
11. If Military be sure you have a Military clause installed in the lease to protect yourself if deployed before lease is up.
12. Make a copy of lease & keep on file.

Be very leary of dealing with Douglas Realty out of Bay St Louis. I rented a home from them and then 19 days later received a notice that it was foreclosed and they tell you they arent in the business of renting to buy or move out. They act like they dont know what is going on but they list multiple properties for the supposed new owner Matrix Land 1 llc. You know what they told me when I asked her where my deposit was..."We had to give it to them but we can work out a payment plan with you for a new deposit and I can put you in another home but I cant guarantee the same thing wont happen there". HELLO ... why would your maintenance man say....Dont worry just go talk to the people this is standard procedure. If you smell a scam....usually is. I lost my money after trusting them .. do you wish to do this also? ... more
