My boyfriend and I have recently asked our landlord about breaking our
lease in Chelsea, NYC. We have lived in this reant-stablized apartment
for almost three years and have decided to move out on our own accord.
Our landlord didn't make anything of it and asked us to send him a letter -
we did. Over a month has past and we have moved out - the apartment has
shown to others but not yet rented to our knowledge (this is a beautiful
doorman building, downtown). We have recently been told by a broker in
NYC that the landlord demands kickbacks from all brokers he deals with!
(ie: landlord takes 5% of brokers 15% fee!) In addition we were told that
NYC law says that any lease can be broken with one months notice to landlord
will no further responsiblilty to landlord going forward. Is this true?
Does anyone know what the name of this law is and where I can find it in
any state document? We haven't received our deposit back yet and have been
told again by this broker that he should have already returned it if the apt
is in good shape?? Please help I don't know what else to do and this guy
has been giving us trouble from day one of our orginal lease - I need
to find some way to take care of this - Thank you very much.
