In Reply to: Relocation out of NYC posted by hildy on September 22, 2001 at 20:56:12:
There is no law allowing you to break a lease due to job relocation. However, the landlord might be willing to just let you out of the lease, particularly in a rent stabilized apartment. You just need to ask. If he refuses, you can look into subletting or assigning your lease. Also worth investigating is if your new employer, as part of your relocation package, will pay fees associated with breaking your lease.
: I have been offered a job with company outside of NYC. As there are no indications in my lease as to what my rights and responsibilities are, I am wondering what ARE the laws in NYC reagrding relocation. I know that everything seems to be different here than anywhere else that I have lived (rarely to my advantage). Any help will be appreciated. Apartment is in Queens and is stabilized.
