A: That will almost certainly a breach of the lease contract. Have you read the termination terms of your lease? Depending on the County where you rent, there may be a small amount of leverage with a security deposit if one was given. You might leave and take the chance of being sued. However you have already given the landlord alot of information to collect a judgment with. In that event you will want to look at your FL exemption rights.
