Breaking a lease

Posted by Laurie K on February 22, 2001 at 13:59:40:

I'm relocating and have to break my lease. Currently, the rent for our Manhattan studio is 1895.00. For the next tenant, the management company has raised it to $2150.00. This is nearly a 15% increase and there is little interest in the apartment because it's not worth $2150.00- not in this economy.

I realize I am responsible for the rent until the place is rented out, but up to what point? If the new rent is so outrageous that no one will take it- do I have to keep paying? Why can't they ask $4,000 for it, since they have no incentive to be sane as I have to pay 1895.00 until the lease is up?
