    Hi there,

    I signed a lease agreement and was told that even if I break it, I have to keep paying rent for 1 year. Really strange. But they didn't tell me of some rules (it's a sharedhouse), like how I can't invite friends over for example. Now I'd like to move and they said I would still have to pay every month even if I'm not there. Does anyone have any information on this?

    Thanks

    We haven't read your lease.

    Did you read it before you signed it?

    Have you consulted with your friend's shyster lawyer?

    I got out of my lease early here in the US. And at least here if you've signed a lease you have to pay off the remaining months even if you won't be living there. I would expect if it's stated in your lease that you're going to have to pay for that time either way.
