Need advice from my fellow fish here. Found an amazing apartment but they want us to move in 2 weeks. I'm already living in a rented apartment but we haven't renewed out lease in 2 years so technically we are "lease free". Our original lease said that we have to give 60 days notice in writing before move out. Can we get sued/penalized for giving 30 days notice?

You’re on a month to month lease and the expectation is you give a months notice, unless if for some unusual reason your rent is due something other than monthly

Yeah logically speaking I came to the same conclusion. Im just curious if anyone has ever been in the similar situation and how it played out.

Can you pay for the new lease to start in 2 weeks but not move in for 60 days?

And pay rent for 2 apartments for a 2 months? I would rather not do that if I can avoid it

Sublease ? Airbnb?

It's against the building contract unfortunately

When did your lease end? A lease is for a period of time and the lease will state what will happen if not renewed. It generally becomes month-to-month and you don’t have to provide the 60 days notices. Does you lease not state that?

If the lease has no clause around after the lease them you are free to move out whenever.

It depends on the rules in your state. If the 60 days applies, maybe you can negotiate somewhere in the middle, like offering to pay for 30 days and moving out in 3 weeks, and then negotiate with the 2 week place to change it to 3 weeks. You still might have to pay for 2 places for some amount of time, but maybe not a full month or more.

Sorry, belong to a lot of bowls and didn’t notice. In that case, NY state rules apply, obviously.

When is the last day of your current lease?

Legally, my lease expired 2 years ago. Nobody followed up with us about renewing it and we didn't ask. We just keep paying same rent and they keep cashing the check.

If you don’t want to swallow a month’s rent and your LL won’t negotiate, I’d let it go. Give 60 days notice and don’t look until less than 30 days out from the end of your current lease. The market is amazing right now and you will get so much FOMO if you look too early.

(This is how I ended up signing a lease that overlapped my current by 3 weeks. Love my apartment but honestly probably did not need to do that.)

Makes sense, Im just curious what's the worse that can happen if we give them 30 days notice and they won't agree.
