I've been looking for a house to buy for my first house and I think I found it. Only problem is that its available for move in but my apartment rent isn't up till May. It looks like I would close near the end of February on the house if I take it. There is a early move-out/reletting charge on the lease of $986. Does this mean if I tell them I'm leaving end of February I will need to pay $986 per month left on my lease? Or does this mean I'll have to pay the full rent each month including a one time $986 fee? I'm kinda thinking its the last one which if they won't cut me a deal I'll have to decide to just cough up the reletting fee and rent each month or not put down money to save the house and take a chance that someone else won't grab it for a month or 2.
