My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: New York, city of New York.
When I signed my lease, the terms of the lease stated that my dogs could not be over 40 lbs. I need to leave the apartment, and I have about 5 months left on the lease. My dogs have gotten bigger, both of them are over 40 lbs. Can my dogs be a reason for me to break the lease without being held responsible for the remainder of the months? Are there any other ways to break a lease in NYC?
Subleasing is permissible with the consent of landlord. However, the landlord "may refuse to consent to a lease assignment for any reason or no reason, but if landlord unreasonably refuses to consent to request for a lease assignment properly made, landlord will end the lease effective after 30 days of my consent." What does this mean?
thanks for your advise.
