If I let the landlord evict me, am I obligated to pay the balance of my lease?I paid half the rent for April, and said I'd pay the rest on the 15th. Last night I got a 5 day notice to vacate. My sister said, "let them evict you. That way you are out of the lease because they terminated the contract, and you won't have to pay." The lease ends the end of May.April 07 2011 - Summerlin South00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
