: : I currently live in a typical Manhattan apartment (8-12 units). My lease was to expiry at the end of September. I gave the Landlord 90 days notice that I would like to terminate the lease three months early. He easily found a new tenant at a higher rent then I am paying. When I asked him if I would receive all of my security deposit he said yes except for $500 for advertising. He now tells me it maybe more. He will know at the end of next month.
: : This is obviously B.S. and I am not going to pay my last month's rent. Given this, what is my liability if any???
: Seems to me you should pay him your June rent and hope he gives your security deposit back. You do not want to go to court over $500.
Thanks for your thoughts Keith (although you sound like the "Landlord.com" website). There is no way I am paying him. Can anyone tell what my liability is??
