Nope she can't do it ....your signed lease is your lease......Period!

You have the right to live there until Nov 15th 2000...... If she wants you out before then, give her a letter stating you want reimbursement for the brokers fee moving expenses and you security deposit, and give her an exact amount, when you recieve a certified check, then you will be out in 30 days... ..........thats fair...

: My roommate and I are living in a private residence in Astoria, Queens. There are a total of 4 apartments, 2 of which are occupied by the owners' brothers. We occupy the top floor of the residence. We signed a one year lease on November 15, 1999 and on February 23, 2000, our landlady presented us with a handwritten letter, indicating that she needed us to vacate by March 25, 2000 at 11:59 pm, as her parents were returning from Greece and would need the apartment. Does she have a legal right to break our lease, and if so, are we eligible for any type of compensation? (We paid a one month broker fee and rented a van to move us in and will incur additional moving expenses to move out.) Additionally, we will require more than 30 days to find a new apartment. Should we seek further legal advice?
