Room Occupancy Contract

December 19, 2006 7:10pm CST
I have been renting a room. I signed a 6 month contract to occupy that room. I gave 2 month deposit and 1 month advance during my initial payment. Now, it's already my fourth month and I decided to just finish my rent until 6 months. So I think it is ok if I would not pay for the next two months since I already have 2 months deposit. However, in my contract, it is stated there that my 2 month deposit will just be given after 6 months so that means I have to pay for the next 2 months and just get my deposit afterwards? Is it possible not just to pay for the next two months? I really need the money so I want, if possible, not to pay anymore. Is there a law that will supercede that contract? I just realize that the use of deposit is for me not to be accountable if I decided not to pay for 2 months but it is the contrary in the contract. What will I do?
