: : We just renewed our lease for one year (we are not rent controlled or rent stabilized), unfortunately due to work problems, we must leave the country soon. Is there a way to end our lease without having to pay for the whole duration?

Yes, and it's legal. You ASSIGN your lease by following the rules in the RPL, article 7, sec 2xx. Real Property Law.
Go to tenant.net
click on New York Tenant Info.
click on 'laws for all tenants.
or type ASSIGN into the search box on this page.
ps: you can try asking first, remember: in THIS state, the landlord is required to 'mitigate' the damages: he can't just sit back and not try to rent your apartment and make you pay the whole lease. he must try to rent it AT THE SAME price.
