: I recently seperated from my fiancee, I was left the newly renewed lease, as the
: apt was in my name. The only problem is I cant afford the apartment, and the land
: lord (a company) will not allow me to terminate the lease, because it is not
: a clause listed in the lease. I have had to take on a night job just to pay
: the bills, when I could live comfortably in a smaller apartment and not have
: to adjust my lifestyle. Please advise, Have searched for NYS docs, but cant access
: the web site for the Govt. office.
Sounds like you're in NY state, but not NYC: still: if you use the search feature on this message board, you'll find several threads concerning breaking leases. Some of laws mentioned are state laws, not NYC laws: like the RPL (Real Property Law). But here's another resource I ran into (didn't read the data: I live in the Bronx). Good luck.
