Subject: breach of lease
I am living in a large apartment complex. Unfortunately, I need to break my lease
due to an immediate job relocation. From my understanding of Real Estate methods,
I am supposed to serve a thirty day notice to vacate. I served a thirty days notice,
but the rental agency says they will not accept it (they didn't "recognize" it).
They said that I have to fill out their "own" form in the case of a breach of lease.
My original lease says nothing about having to fill out their form. Anyhow, I took
a look at their form, and it's basically the same as a thirty day notice, except that
they have all these extra charges attached. They said they will charge me for
"office setup" and "finding a new tenant"...etc. Do I have to sign their form? Don't
they have an obligation by law to recognize my thirty day notice as well as
make an attempt to "mitigate" my damages?
Also, do you know where I can get a copy of NY State Real Property Law?
