NY City apartment - at least 40 apartments in the building
I signed a three year lease with my roommate on 12/1/00. I only wanted to sign a 1 year lease but she asked me to sign a 3 year lease as a favor to her. I gave her and my landlord 60 days written notice that I was moving out of the apartment on 12/1/01 (exactly one year). My roommate has not found a new roommate to take my place. I have been searching to find a new roommate to take my place at the rent I paid but my roommate wants the new person to sublet from her directly and wants to raise the rent for the new person by $100 so that her rent will be reduced by $100. (I have this all confirmed in copies of emails). I want to make sure that I am not going to be legally responsible for any future rent??? To date, my landlord has not shown the apartment to anyone. My roommate does NOT want to move out. But we are both on the lease. Do I need to do anything else to protect myself?????
