What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
Brooklyn, New York. I have been a subtenant of a co-op building (my LL also lives in building) for over 17 years. My lease has a clause that I am supposed to pay $1,000 move out fee. I have a small studio. I lost my job and went through all my savings, thus the reason why my LL is not renewing my lease b/c I can no longer afford to live here.
I am basically broke and am going to donate all my furniture so that they will take it since I cant afford to store it. I told my LL that I CANNOT afford the $1,000 move out fee...I just dont have the money.
She told me that the management company could give me a hard time? She knows that I havent worked in about a year and that I am broke (I was honest with her).
Can they sue me if I dont have the move-out fee or will they expect my LL to cover the move-out fee. I plan on taking pictures and video of my apt. and the hallways (which are wallpapered and I already see tears and dont want to get blamed for it).
What can they do to me if I have to move out by July 1st but cannot afford the $1,000? Please advise...Thank you.
