I live in a rent-stabilized building in NYC. I have to break my lease at
the end of this month (Jan). I gave a verbal notice to my landlord early in
December and they started showing my apt to other prospective tenants.
But since then, the landlord had changed his mind and took the apt off the
market even though there were a lot of interest. He did not say why but
I found out that he intends to renovate part of the apt after I leave so
that he can rent it at a higher price. Am I going to be liable for the
rent after I move out during the renovation period? I have also sent him
a written notice regarding my departure and made efforts to help them to
find a new tenant. The landlord seems to have trouble figuring out
how much to charge for rent after renovation and he is not in any hurry
to do so. Should I be concerned about this? Also, what is the policy on
getting back the security deposit after breaking the lease?
