Backing out a lease right after signingHello,Do I have any right to rescission within days after signing a residential lease? This is in Chicago for a large high-rise apartment building managed by a large property manager. I called and the leasing agent (not manager, wasn't in office) said I had to do the standard buyout stated on the lease (2 months rent). There's nothing in the lease that specifically covers this scenario. I electronically signed the lease yesterday at a Caribou Coffee cafe with no witnesses. My reason for backing out is plain old regret. Also, this if for a sublet at below market rent. The way they described it was that the original tenant is completely out of the picture once I sign. I'm completely replacing them on the lease so it's not really a sublease in practicality.
