I recently came to an agreement with my landlady allowing me to move out before the lease was up. I could move out and she would start looking for a new tenant asap. I moved almost everything out of the apartment, cleaned the place until it was gleaming and thought that I wouldn't have any issues after that. I forgot to take a couple of things and left behind a small vacuum and a couple of broken down cardboard boxes - nothing huge, and I'm still paying her rent until she finds a new tenant. My ladylady has been continuing to bother me about moving all of my things out, claiming what a hardship it is for her to have to deal with a vacuum in a closet and a couple boxes tucked away in the back hall and how she has to show the apartment and there are things I left behind still there. My question is does she have the right to expect me to remove my things if I am still locked in a lease? By her asking me to move my belongings out is she violating my rights as her tenant? It is difficult for me to get out there now and I have been very willing to help her out up until now, but I feel like she is trying to play both sides of this. I can move early but I have to keep paying her until she gets someone in there AND I have to move my things out even though I'm still renting the apartment.
