need to break lease, lease isn't signed by landlord

Posted by Krs1 on November 26, 2001 at 13:34:28:

I'm moving out of the state in a few months but my lease isn't up until the end of may. The apt is in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. I used a broker to find my apartment and he forgot to have the landlord sign the lease. Consequently I have both copies of the lease that I signed but he did not. Since it hasn't been signed by the landlord, is it legally binding? I plan to tell my landlord that I'll be giving up the apartment at least two months in advance but I'm wondering if I will be liable for rent if he can't find a new renter. Can I get my security deposit back if I give him plenty of notice?
