In Reply to: Can I cancel a lease renewal? posted by KK on February 25, 2002 at 19:13:52:
I suggest you take tomorrow and maybe wednesday off of work and consult with some lawyers, you might be able to give them a 30 day notice of non renewal but it would have to be done by March 1st. ...
Call the NY bar association and see if you can get a free or low cost consultation.
: I signed my lease renewal (free market apartment in NYC)in January for the new lease term to begin April 1. I have had several bad things happen to me since then (my business is closing, my current roommate is moving out...etc etc) I want to move out on March 31, when my current lease ends and cancel the renewal that I signed before. Is this possible? Has anyone ever succesfully done this?
: I called the management company, and they said that the lease renewal was approved, though I have yet to see the copy of the new lease (I didn't know it was approved until I called to ask). They told me that I could terminate the lease under the lease termination clause...1 month penalty and I would have to move out but still be on the line until they re-rented. Of course, I asked them how long they typically took to re-rent apartments and the answer I got was "It's a soft market". It doesn't look good to me....I cannot afford to move out in the hopes that they will find someone.
: Also, I am assuming that legal advice would be necessary...does anyone have any recommedations for a good lawyer who is familiar with this sort of thing?
: Please feel free to email if you can help!!
