In Reply to: obligation to notify landlord? posted by hardy on June 30, 2000 at 10:23:00:
Your security deposit and your sanity is two good reasons to notify the landlord of any actions like moving. If you move out without notice the landlord can leave the apartment vacant for many months and charge the rental fee for the space. Also the landlord can trash (if it not already) the apartment and claim you did X amount of dollars of damage. Do you really want to go to small claims court over this? I learned the hardway that running away only brought more problems.
: Must a tenant notify a landlord that he's leaving at the end of a lease period, even if nothing about such notification is specified in the lease? (This is a non-stabilized apartment in a Manhattan co-op; landlord has consistently given less than 30 days notice of rent increases.)
