Getting out: How can I break a lease in New York City?

So one of the best kept secrets of Manhattan real estate is that it can be easy and inexpensive to break a lease by using a real estate agent.

If your apartment is a good value, a real estate agent like me will be happy to list it at no cost to you.

Even better, we pay of all of the advertising costs on places like Craigslist, Facebook, StreetEasy, Zillow, Renthop and Naked Apartments.

You will first need to check with your landlord for their lease break policies. Some landlords will charge you a fee for breaking a lease, and some may have restrictions on how your lease break can be advertised.

The rest of the transaction is painless.

Realtors want listings, I am no exception.

I will list your property, take pictures and video, screen prospective tenants, set up showings, negotiate terms, help them complete an application, and get approved. Your listing will be in the REBNY database and other agents will be able to bring their clients to the table as well.

If your listing is an attractive one, you should be able to easily find someone who will put down a new deposit, pay the rent, pay the broker fee, and minimize any cost to you.

If you are looking to list a lease break please call me at 929-429-0240 or email sgoldklang@corcoran.com.
