I broke a rule in my lease. Probably manager texted me and said that I have to leave property by November 12 due to breach. I was informed one week ago and the property manager said that the sixty days began when lease was breached... and not when I was informed of early termination
Property manager claims that I breached my lease on September 12. I was sent a text on October 1 saying that 1. My lease will be terminated early. 2. I have to vacate property by Nov 12 and 3. that the sixty days began when lease was allegedly breached and NOT when I was notified.
A breach of the lease could allow the landlord to dispense with any notice provision in the lease and move to dispossess you by demanding the return of the premises and filing a dispossessory action in your county's Magistrate Court. Perhaps your landlord does not understand the law?
In short, maybe. More facts have to be disclosed. Renters who have property that are foreclosed have certain protections. However, the landlord can still be sued for any additional damages that may occur as a result of the foreclosure and premature termination of the lease.

This sounds like a really bad situation and my first response would be for you to leave and get yourself out of this situation. Your safety is of the utmost importance. I am not sure of the question. What is your specific question?
If the damage done to the carpet, chimney, and fireplace is beyond normal wear and tear for a three year period, then your former tenant would be responsible for the cost of repair. If you are still within the 30 days of your tenant leaving the property, you can send them a letter with a list of...Read more »

Normally, there is a penalty for breaking a lease. My suggestion is to consult with an attorney and have them review your lease to determine whether you are responsible.

The landlord can keep the security deposit (or a portion of the deposit) to cover damages which occurred as a result of your time in the property.
