: I think that the other replies are missing the point. This is not simply a matter of keys. It sounds like the tenant has not moved out or otherwise surrendered possession. If the apartment is in New York, the landlord (or the new tenant) will have to go to housing/landlord-tenant court to evict the
: tenant.

Right, it's not harassment to call a former tenant to ask for keys, but
aside from a LL claiming abandonment after a period of time, it's possible
the tenant has not relinquished legal possession and the LL may be trying
to get a new tenant in there illegally. It happens all the time. On the
other hand, the tenant may have left and given the keys back, but prior
to the expiration of lease (notwithstanding what the poster said) and the
LL may be trying to concoct a case to go after the previous tenant alleging
he/she never gave up possession.
