I am a F1 student visa holder and now waiting for the approval of my OPT. My apartment lease got automatically renewed for the next whole year, and I did not receive the notice letter from the leasing office - although the leasing manager claimed they have sent the notice letter to us.
The leasing manager told us to provide her documents which explicitly state the exact date which I have to leave U.S. since my visa get rejected by USCIS. However since I am a F1 visa holder, I won't receive notice of the rejection of visa from the government. On the OPT, I cannot accrue more than 90 cumulative days of unemployment from the start date of my EAD card or any time during the OPT period. I can only calculate the remaining days by myself. And I got a letter from the international student office of my university to prove the fact I just mentioned above.
When I gave the letter to the manager and told her that I plan to leave U.S. on the last day of the 90 unemployment days, which would be the end of October, she interupted me rudely by saying that it is me who decide not to work and refuse that letter. Then I tried to tell her that whether I can work here does not depend on my will but on the employer. And she still refuse to do so by acting in the way that she just does not want us to terminate the lease early with legitimate reasons. And they don't allow lease transfer.
Due to the visa issues, the leasing office require a 30-days notice to them. I am wondering if they would still reject to terminate the lease lawfully at the 60th day of accrued unemployment period. What can I do at that time? And I am even thinking about having the same letter from the international student office at the last day of 90 days umemployment period and telling the manager that I have to leave at that date. And I can live with losing the securtiy deposit but not break the lease with unlawful reasons.
