: I need some advice. I am subleasing a co-op in Westchester that has a "no-pet" clause as well as stating that the only occupants can be my son and myself. The problem is I am getting married and my lease does not expire until October. How can I break the lease without having to pay my landlord the next 4 months rent. And yes you guessed it my fiancee has a dog
Before you go through all this - have you talked to the LL/Manager and tried to work something out? Having a good tenant default on a lease is not in his best interest either and maybe you can strike a deal (in writing, of course). Perhaps they will let you leave without penalty if you help them find a new tenant and cover the transition costs. Or maybe they'll even let you all live there for the four months if you absolutely promise to be out in time. It can't hurt to try.
