Throwing away a rent stabilized lease is one of the dumbest things you can do......especialy if you are buying property at the peak of the market!
So UNLESS you NEVER intend to move back to NYC, or if you lucked out and marrying someone and they own something,in nyc.you are losing big time.
So explain to us, why you are thinking of doing such a foolish thing?
If you had really thought this out and kept your mouth shut to the landlord, you might have been able to hustle the landlord into paying you to move if your rent is cheap enough.
: Hi -- I have a rent-stabilized apartment in Manhattan and am considering terminating early. I couldn't find any specific provisions in my lease for an early termination (except for an illegal one, i.e. default). But, when I spoke to my landlord's office about this, they said it's possible, but that they would need two months' notice, and that they would keep the security deposit.
: Does anyone have any advice about what my rights as a tenant are in this situation (especially since there isn't anything specific in my lease about this)? Any suggestions about resources for information, or things to watch out for in early terminations, would be greatly appreciated!
