Pull up your state laws and read the lease terms for the one that is expiring.  In most states you  have to give at least 30 days notice before the expiration of the lease to get away without penalty.   At this stage you may be looking at another 9 months.

Some landlords are open to some negotiation but as you've signed it you aren't in the driver's seat.   Propose that you pay an extra couple months rent so she has time to find another tenant without loss of her income, or you'll pay rent until she finds a tenant to move in.
