The original lease is closed/terminated and the inequity gets carried over into the new lease.

Now kiss and make up
No worries. Him smart, me stupid. I hope I or another CA have the opportunity to "TRANSFER" a lease for him. I'll club him like a baby seal! Sorry, that was mean. I don't take advantage of people. I try to help them down the best path and if they choose another I will give them the best information to do so.
