What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NV
I am first time landlord. I rented my house to section 8 people. The lady signed 1 year lease. After 5 month stay, she gave us 30 days notice, she want to move out at the end of this Month. In the lease, it was very clearly write if she break the lease, she has to forfeit her security deposit plus the balance until the end of lease. We called her, she said she understood that, but she has to leave due to personal reason and she doesn't have much money (she means she can not offered to pay).
What I need to do at this moment? It will be hard for me to find tenant at this time. Should government responsible for this lease? What happens if I don't sign the release letter which she said government require us to sign before she move out?
Appreciate your help.
