Re: Tenant trying to exit lease early by Amy on December 20, 2018 @00:34

The residence is a single family home with a legal mother-n-law/basement apartment. It has a separate entrance and is well suited to the rental market. I live in an area where renting is fairly common but expensive. West Asheville, NC.
The previous tenant was nearing the end of her lease and her relationship, thus making the rent difficult for her. She moved to a cheaper rental outside of town.

There has never been any friction between myself and a tenant. I have also never had a tenant attempt to outright break a lease. It's always been understood that it is a legal document and negotiating a release is a necessary measure.
This tenant has basically tried to toss her deposit at me (knowing I had a right to it anyway), hoping I would let her out of the lease. Why she has decided to do so is beyond me, as the unit was 95% ready when she dropped this little bomb; unless she has had a recent change in her income.
She has not phisically been in the house/unit for 2 nights - and yes I will be relieved when she has vacated, but my major relief is having the unit completed.
