: First of all, this occurred in NH not NY, but I couldn't find a thing
: about NH rent laws on the net...
: My brother recently moved out of an apt. complex in NH. He moved on 5/30
: and returned the keys on 6/3. The landlords are now informing him that
: since he did not return the keys right away, it is their policy to charge
: him for one months rent! Their reasoning is that he "had access to the
: apartment" (what's he going to do in an empty apartment? and for 3 days?).
: As I said, they say it is "policy" but it is NOT in the lease and I have
: never heard of such a thing. Is this legal? He has been phoning them
: repeatedly and getting the run-around and no answers whatsoever. Please
: help! I am heading up there from NYC this week and want to help him
: straighten this out.

Take them to LL tenant court or you will never get the money.. file today!!!
