However if the company was able to sign the origianl tenant off the lease and sign you onto a completley new lease than you are now responsible for the rent as it is a legal binding contract.
I would talk to the managment company and the previous lease holder to try and work something out!
It's a contract. Both parties are normally obligated to perform and there are remedies or penalties for non-performance. You will need to read the contract to determine what the consequences are.
The best thing to do is discuss with your landlord and determine what the best course of action is for both parties.
However unless you have contract with the property owner you may not have any rights ONLY the property owner can approve you as an resident of the rental.
