contract law

Katie is a 17-year-old (a minor) who graduated from high school two months ago. In August, she started attending a university 150 miles from home and has contracted to rent an apartment near the university for $500 per month. She also contracted for a 3-year lease a used car from the local car dealership. She is working as a waitress to earn enough money to be self-supporting. After living in the apartment and paying monthly rent for five months, a dispute arises between Katie and the property owner. Katie, still a minor, moves out and returns the key to the property owner. The property owner wants to hold Katie liable for the balance of the payments due under the lease. Katie also returns the car to the dealership with the keys. Discuss Katie's liability, providing laws, cases, and examples to support your response.
