New York Landlords - No Duty To Mitigate Damages

Posted by Mark Smith on June 28, 2000 at 01:19:44:

The New York Law Journal, June 28, 2000, reports the case of Solow Management Corp. v. Lovelace, decided by Manhattan Civil Court Judge Samuels.

Unlike the requirements in many states, New York landlords do not have an obligation to mitigate damages, by trying to re-rent the apartment, when a tenant vacates an apartment before the end of the lease term.

The case cites an article in the New York Law Journal by Padilla, "Does a Landlord Have a Duty to Mitigate Damages When a Residence is Abandoned?", N.Y.L.J., 1/26/00, page 1, column 1.

Would it be possible for Richard (loudrich) to find that article and post it here?
