Why not try to sublet the apartment. If the dwelling has more than 4 apartments you should be able to do this even if the lease says no (against NY law). If the landlord refuses the sublet and the tenant has good credentials then you should at that point be able to give 30 days notice and break the lease.

Or find someone willing to take over the apartment...this might be good enough for the landlord. Of course that person would pay any vacancy increases.

This was on the link supplied to you.


: 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.

: Thanks
