In Reply to: Landlord won't show my posted by Greg Fletcher on April 24, 2000 at 10:20:21:
: I have been relocated to another state with my company and I have been paying rent on an empty apartment. The landlord won't let me sublet, so I have been doing all I can to rent the apt. so that I can break the lease. Everything from ads in the Vvoice to the Times ... but he wants to raise the rent over 20% and refuses to show that apartment to potential renters during the assigned hours. I am out of town, and feel trapped. Anyone have any suggestions ??

YOU should not be paying the rent.
All tenants in multiple dwellings in NYC (and NYS?) have an absolute right to sublet (means you're coming back) or assign (means you're leaving forever) their lease IF they follow the procedures spelled out in the law. RPL2xx. Use the search box for those two terms to locate the details. Read also: http://tenant.net/nyc.html
nb: 20% is the legal increase for rent stabilized apartments for new tenants.
