What is the name of your state? California
I'm trying to cancel a lease contract that begins next month. As I'm reading the contract, I notice an error in the dates relating to lease term. It reads:
WITNESS: That for the consideration of rent payments and covenants adherence on the part of the Tenant, the Owner rents to the Tenant and the Tenant hires from the Owner the premises known as Apartment #[number] at [address] upon a year tenancy commencing on the 1st of June, 2006, and terminating on the 31st day of May, 2006.
Since the termination date is before the commencement date, does that mean the contract is invalid? How do I get out of this contract? Send Notice of Intent to Vacate? I'm not even living there yet. Or do I still need to sign and Agreement to Terminate Lease?
