Dear Eastsider: Take my apartment – please!

Six months ago Diego Garza moved into a renovated one-bedroom Boyle Heights apartment on Breed Street. Diego loves the place – nine-foot high ceilings and a short walk to the Soto Street Gold Line Station – but now plans to move into a house that he and his girlfriend are buying in East Los Angeles. There’s one hitch. He’s stuck paying $825 a-month on the apartment for the remainder of the lease until a new renter is found.  He needs to find a replacement tenant or find himself paying rent and a mortgage, too:

“My landlord is a great guy and very understanding and very helpful. He posted the apartment for rent as soon as I told him the news a few weeks ago. He is willing to break the lease and find someone else and sign a new lease with them. But of course, until then I am legally obligated to that lease until I can find someone to rent it.  It’s a really great apartment … I wouldn’t be moving if it wasn’t for this amazing opportunity on the house. Hope you can help me out!

Here’s the CraigList ad for Diego’s apartment.
