I wasn't sure where to post this, as the housing section didn't have apartment info in it. I commissioned in May through a midwest NROTC unit, and am stashed here until October. However, my lease ends at the end of this month, so I'm having to look for a new place to live for 2-3 months. Problem is, I can't find any leases at all that are shorter than 12 months, and none of the apartments around here have explicit military clauses in their leases, so I'm being forced to look into the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act to cancel a lease. Problem is, I'm having trouble finding clarification on this. My orders came in mid April, and from what I've read, the SCRA says you are able to terminate a lease if you 'execute the lease and thereafter receive military orders.' Because I received orders prior to any lease I would sign in the future, would I be able to use this Act to break mine when I leave my unit? I'm trying to be very cautious about this because I don't want to be stuck with a lease on an apartment that I'm not going to be living in, and that I can't break through SCRA. Any insight anyone has on this would be greatly appreciated.
