Apartment complex won’t let Army enlistee out of his lease

ST. PETERSBURG β€” Mike Agosta enlisted in the Army and learned he would ship out 19 days later. He expected his apartment complex would let him go without penalty, considering he was ending the lease to serve his country.

He was wrong.

Florida law allows military personnel to break their leases if they show documentation and give 30 days’ notice. His apartment complex, Camden Lakes, said it wouldn’t accept his request to end the lease.

“I was really dumbfounded,” Agosta said from his father’s home in South Florida, where he’s visiting before shipping out to Fort Jackson, S.C., on Tuesday.

The company that owns the complex at 11150 Fourth St. N said it needed his official orders, which he says he won’t receive until the first day of boot camp. Agosta said he showed his signed Army contract, but the company wouldn’t accept it.
