Teaching tenants to just do what they want.  By the time the landlord can evict you, you will have gotten what you want.

Really ticks me off that we have people training others how to be losers.  Common sense here would say to have the lease revert to a month-to-month for that one month.  LL gets his money...tenant gets to leave when he wants.  Seems easy enough.

The tenant knows well in advance that he's leaving out of state. He's just trying to dictate exactly what he wants. I'm sure he could speed things up to be out by the end of the lease if he had to. If I was the landlord, I'd jack the rent up as high as possible for the tenant's last month. If the tenant refuses to pay, evict him like any other scumbag. I've heard of people getting bad credit when they're behind on rent. I don't know how it gets reported,but at least its something. I think people should get bad credit for that. Perhaps it would deter people from paying other creditors and stiffing the landlord.

I've read that the Landlord Protection Agency has a feature that allows its members to report tenants to the credit bureaus.  I've never used it so I can't vouch for them.
