I think that the other replies are missing the point. This is not simply a matter of keys. It sounds like the tenant has not moved out or otherwise surrendered possession. If the apartment is in New York, the landlord (or the new tenant) will have to go to housing/landlord-tenant court to evict the
: I need some help. My friend is about to
(hopefully) rent an apartment. The problem is that
the former tenant has not turned in his keys, and the agency that is handling this apt. says that they
cannot start the ball rolling in terms of renting the apartment until they get the keys. Here is the
clincher. They say ( the agency) that they cannot
call the tenant and ask him to leave and turn in his keys because it would be considered harrassment.
Now, for the record, his lease is expired. Does
anyone have any ideas as to what to do. Please email me ASAP.. this is time sensitive.
