Need to pay fee when someone else takes over lease?
« on: October 05, 2019, 05:34:32 pm »
I informed the real estate office about my intentions not to renew my lease and that I would be interested in moving out earlier. They were able to find someone, however, I wasn't aware that I'd have to pay a fee equivalent to the one I had paid when I moved into the place. Is this because the real estate office went out and found a replacement themselves rather than myself?

Edit: After mentioning that I wasn't aware of such fee, the agent offered to ask the other tenant about splitting the fee. When she called back, she said the owner would be responsible for payment of the fee. I'm not exactly following how this all works out but it seems like it all worked out in my favor.
