: Yes, the tenant probably should have looked at alternatives before informing the LL.
: But our building's tenants are mostly recent immigrants, coming from societies where authorities (in this case the LL), are not challenged.
: Unfortunately, the first thing the tenant did after being told to relocate (very little extra $$ involved), was to inform the LL, thinking that, because his boss told him to relocate, the LL would voluntarily end the lease w/o penalties, and return the deposit.
: The next day, he received the LL's waver to sign. His fear now is that by not signing the waver document before leaving next month, the LL will sue him for breaking the lease, which ends next summer.
: Judging from the response of "Anna" to another posting, relocation is not a valid reason to break the lease.
Please tell him: Don't sign that waiver!
Follow DK's email exactly. (it might be too late for JJ's sublet attempt.)
If your neighbor is still afraid, print your emails, JJ's & DK's and take them, your neighbor, that waiver, his lease, the O/C&MCI papers to a Tenant Clinic next Tues or Wed. http://tenant.net/Tengroup/index.html Other groups have been listed here, such as Claire Shulman's webpage in Queens.
(ps: Richard does tend to go off the deep end a bit)
