Back story: My gf and I moved from Denver to Gillette, Wyoming almost a year ago. We looked around all over the place for apartments to move into, and everything was insanely expensive, beyond our means. We then found a brand new apartment complex, that wasnt finished with all construction, that had only about 25% of the occupancy filled (Mainly white people, workers that shared our same work hours ie. would be going to bed at a farely decent time) We really liked the area, the rent was reasonable, and some of the perks is that it would include cable TV and high speed internet (which could essentially save $200/month compared to anywhere else). We chose an apartment that faced the middle playground area, so that our 5 year old boy could play on and it we didnt have to go across the apt complex for him to go and play on in the summer. So we signed a 12 month lease, out of frustration, and knowing that we REALLY liked the apartment and it was perfect for us and our living conditions. Since the day we signed the lease, it has gone downhill. I cant even start to explain everything that has gone wrong with this place. So I will start a list. -Within the first two months of moving in, they had to come in to fix our heating because the pressure wasnt being equalized between rooms with the way they built the units, and each time they came in, they gave us less then 24 hours of notice before they came in. -We've had people come in to our apartment without notice, with a single knock on the door to change out air filters. -Since Janurary, a VERY large amount of hispanics have been moving to the apartment complex. When I say VERY, some of the apartments will have 4-5 adults in each apartment. And follows with them is kids, usually unattended. They have parties outside int he play area and volleyball court EVERY night upwards to midnight and we can hear them scream and yell all night long. -With that many people in the complex, that means there is NO parking anywhere close to the vacinity of your entrance. -Their high speed internet consists of ONE T1 line, that thens gets broadcasted to 216 apartments. And who knows how many apartments have numerous computers......you get the jist. At times, we can only connect at 30kbs. And we have no option on getting our own services because of how they designed the apartments communications. -Same thing goes with the cable tv. They have two dish network units that are shared between all the apartments. And since we moved in, almost a year ago.....it went from about 40 channels of english speaking channels, to 30/10 english to spanish speaking channels....and is regularly off line because of missalignment of the satellite. Once again, we cant upgrade to our services. These are just the icing on the cake, we have NUMEROUS other things that have happened that has made us completely hate this complex. Well, we found a house we want to rent downtown, but we have two months left on our lease. There is a section in the lease that says word for word. "Monthly rent $1150.00 Pro-rata rent for move-in $593.54 for Oct 16th to Oct 31st Administrative Fee $125 Late Fee $50.00 plus $5.00 per day after and inclusive of the 5th day of each month. Month to Month Fee $100.00 Early termination of lease fee $200.00 Security deposit $500.00 NSF Fee $40.00 Service of Notice Fee $25.00" Well we put in our 30 days on Friday, the 16th. And the lady at the front desk said she was sure that we were still responsible for the remaining rent, I was like WTF is the reasoning behind a Early Termination Fee thats in our signed contract, and STILL have to pay the remaining two months rents. Soo.....my question, what is their legal holding to us continuing the payment of the remaining rent if we pay the early termination of lease fee? Any help would be great!
