Legal Q&A: Can tenant claim ‘buyer’s remorse’ to get out of lease?


Question: I rented an apartment to a young man; he signed a one-year lease and paid the deposit and first month’s rent in full. He moved in today, and less than 24 hours later, he is requesting to get out of his lease because another apartment that he prefers became available. Is there any kind of buyer’s remorse on signing a lease?
