So, for those who won their apartments and had to get out of their current lease, how'd you do it...?

Was it:

A] Paid rents for both apartments
B] Transferred current lease/sublet
C] Broke lease with landlord's permission (got security back)
D] Pushed back lease signing for lottery apartment
E] Some other way

Pushing back the lease signing for the lottery unit would be the least stressful and easiest situation, so interested in hearing from people that were able to do that.

Also, couldnt find any threads where this question was answered but if anyone has links to any I'd appreciate answers from there too
this is all nice and congrats but u stay put until u a) see your new unit and b) get your keys

how do you know if youíre gonna LIKE the unit they assign to you?

Ouch... so this rules out having the lease signing pushed back, I presume. Did you win an apartment in a lux building?

Personally I'd give them more notice than less so they aren't totally blindsided, but understand the current mentality around here is to screw any LL to extent possible, consequences be damned.
this law was originally done away with because it is pretty meaningless .. without stipulation as to what mitigating is supposed to mean the courts found it a silly law and ended the landlords responsibility to mitigate . ..


after all a sign on the lawn on a dead end street was mitigating tenant damages and is in compliance . but the new laws bring this gem back again anyway .

if it sounds good , it was thrown in the new law package regardless of how it actually works .
