I agree I do go off the deepend a bit....LOL

But while you are well versed in the Law, I try and shake up people,
and get them to think..... just what in the heck they are doing.

So I offered this advice:

Probably the only alternative is for his boss to sign a statement on company letterhead, and have it signed by
the company president and the company lawyer...and say its only a one year relocation with a year
extention and give it to the LL, and trying to sublease it to friends for a year or two.

Just think if the company lied to him and the relocation lasts a few months or he gets fired or laid off...
At least he could have his old apt back in the city.

Not to mention losing a significant amount of cash, from the RO/MCI and security deposit.


: : :Richard,
: : Yes, the tenant probably should have looked at alternatives before informing the LL.
: : But our building's tenants are mostly recent immigrants, coming from societies where authorities (in this case the LL), are not challenged.
: : Unfortunately, the first thing the tenant did after being told to relocate (very little extra $$ involved), was to inform the LL, thinking that, because his boss told him to relocate, the LL would voluntarily end the lease w/o penalties, and return the deposit.
: : The next day, he received the LL's waver to sign. His fear now is that by not signing the waver document before leaving next month, the LL will sue him for breaking the lease, which ends next summer.
: : Judging from the response of "Anna" to another posting, relocation is not a valid reason to break the lease.

: ***********************

: Please tell him: Don't sign that waiver!

: Follow DK's email exactly. (it might be too late for JJ's sublet attempt.)

: If your neighbor is still afraid, print your emails, JJ's & DK's and take them, your neighbor, that waiver, his lease, the O/C&MCI papers to a Tenant Clinic next Tues or Wed. Other groups have been listed here, such as Claire Shulman's webpage in Queens.

: (ps: Richard does tend to go off the deep end a bit)
