Ah, you can have it all and still not be happy...

You own a "weekend home" that you plan to move to. Your wife has accepted a job out of town and you're both going to live there. Just want is the problem here ? What is your true motivation to hang onto this apartment when you're moving away ?

Sounds suspiciously like you want to warehouse a cheap apartment while you live somewhere else, and make some $ in the process. Yes, its been done before, but realize that in doing so you are taking away an apartment that should rent to someone who acually lives in the city and needs a reasonable roof over their head.

Can you sue your landlord over this ? Why certainly. Since you've obviously got money to spare, lawyers everywhere would just love to get some.
