I just recently sign a year lease at Campus Edge apartments in Raleigh NC on March 28, 2008. Today is April 3, 2008 and I got an outstanding offer to live in a house near campus. So I went to Campus Edge's office to see if I could get out of the lease since it has only been seven days ( only 5 business days not counting sat. and sun.). They said that I could not unless I paid 85% (almost 5 hundred dollars) of the first months rent. Is there anyway to get out of the lease without paying any penalty charge?
Thank You
