Once I notify my landlord that I want to end my lease, do I still have to pay my rent? Will I get my security deposit back?
When you end your lease, you will no longer have to pay your rent or any other charges for the rest of the lease period. However, you are responsible for paying full rent for the month that you end your lease. Ending your lease does not end your responsibility to pay the landlord for any unpaid rent or money owed before your lease ended. You also give up your right to have your security deposit returned. 1
