I rent a small piece of COMMERCIAL property for a non-profit org in South Carolina. The landlord is attempting to replace all of the electric meters at this location and wants EACH tenant to pay for the expenses, totaling more than $1500. Isn't it the lanlord's responsibility to correct this issue? Also, what is the SC Commercial code. I have the residential code. Thanks. Mark

My lease states that if I break it I will have to pay the reminder of the year on the day I move out. I want to break my lease because the heater in my house is broken and management and the landlords have done nothing about it. When I got home from work yesterday the temperature had dropped down to 56 °. On my lease I informed them of my health problems. I want to know how I can get out of my lease without paying for the remaining 7 months on my lease, and what the law on a situation like this is? I don’t care about the deposit I just want to move out. Thanks Charlie
