Landlord/tenant filter: Providing somewhat later than required notice that I'm moving out. How to approach & what should I/can I offer?
I'm moving out of my apartment in Philadelphia at the end of August when the lease is up. During a very busy summer, I thought the lease required 30 days notice of not renewing, so I could provide notice now and be ok. However, when I finally read the lease, it was actually 60 days, such that I should have provided notice by July 1 -- which I obviously did not do.
My landlords have always been very helpful, responsive, and chill during my year here, so I think they'll be ok when I tell them I'm moving out, but I do want to have some responses/offers ready, e.g. offering to help them find a new tenant if they point out my notice was late, a small/nominal fee, etc. Has anyone been in this situation before, and if so, what did you do?
Any additional tactics or experiences since this questions was posted in 2005
