We went to a local information session where a "consultant" offered a top lease to anyone whose current lease expired within one year or less. A copy of the contract was avaiable for viewing but we were not allowed to remove a copy of the contract from the premises. We could choose to sign that day or think about it and come back and sign within a couple of weeks. We spoke with some people including an attorney who said we were being offered the going rate. We signed the lease and recived our money. The lease is a 5 year lease with the opition to add a 6th and/or 7th year for additional money at the same rate.
