Have non-rent regulated appt. in Manhattan. I'd like to terminate lease before term.
Anybody knows what are the "provisions of section 226-b" or where I can get a copy ?
Thanks in advance
I have an appartment in midtown Manhattan. It's not rent-regulated (1100$ for a tiny studio). I live in Canada and my wife lives (most of the time) in NYC. I want to move to NYC and will need bigger appt. (this one is too small for two)
Finding-a-job timing, etc. makes it unsuitable for us to complete the current lease (due 99-03) and we would like the landlord to re-lease (or sublet?) it himself.
In the current lease contract I've read the following:
"A tenant has the right to sublet his/her apartment, even if subletting is prohibited in the lease, provided that the tenant complies strictly with the provisions of Real Property Law Section 226-b."
(here are some reference details (from tenant.net):
New York State Real Property Law (RPL)
Chapter 50 (52?)
Article 7: Landlord and tenant
Section 226b. Right to sublease or assign)
I've also read (I think) that the landlord might be more enclined to re-lease it himself instead of having me sublet it ! Does it make sense ??
Does anybody know what are the "provisions of section 226-b" or where I can get a copy ? NY Public Library ? NYS-DHCR ? NYCHA ?
