In Reply to: son's lease ends 4 months before he can move posted by Warren on January 02, 1998 at 09:04:04:
: My son's lease for his Manhattan apartment ends at the end of April 1998.
: He will be starting school in Pittsburgh in September 1998. If he renews
: his lease we will be stuck with 8 months of expensive rent after he leaves
: unless the apartment is rented quickly. We can't afford that. The landlord
: is unwilling to have him stay 4 months without a lease or offer a 4 month
: lease. Moving back home and putting his things in storage would add
: significantly to the expense. That limits his choices to staying in his
: current apartment or moving to Pittsburgh early and perhaps facing the
: same problem in Pittsburgh in 4 years.
: His rent payments have always been on time. What are his rights? When
: a person knows he has to move he obviously can't renew his lease
If your son doesn't want to stay somewhere else from April to Sept., he can renew the lease and then sublet the apt. to someone until the lease ends (1 year lease).
