Yes, your landlady can sue you and your boyfriend for the rent through February 29, 2000, although she may have trouble finding either one or both of you. If she re-rents the apartment, she could sue for the costs to repair any damage done, re-renting, and other expenses, if she can find either one or both of you.

: Recently me and my boyfriend have broken up and we are living together in brooklyn, ny.
: He wants to move out and so do I. We both signed a one year lease which expires on March 1.
: We wanted to move by october 1 and not pay rent for the next month and live off of the security.
: What is the worst thing that could happen to us if we decide to break the lease? My landlord is a bit weird and we are not sure what she will do.
: Can she sue us for the remainder of the rent??
