I know this topic has brought up before here but I simply cannot find the info I'm looking for.
I live in a TINY 180 square foot apt in the village.
My wife and I have lived here for 20 years.
It's a rent stabilized apt (under 800$/monthly). Those that aren't pay $2000+.
The landlord offered us $25,000 last year not to renew our lease but we said no.
We are in the process of buying a home out of state and would like for them to buy us out now.
How do I do it?
I know if they find out we are leaving they wont give us anything.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

you can keep taking them to court for little things that are violations........ In my case i had a Rent controlled apt 1955-2006 the landlord died and they were selling to Vantage real estate aka slum dog reality and they offered me without the asking and I took the money and ran.....i was paying $670 for a 5 room penthouse and I dont regret it. I am happier and glad I do not have to deal with Major Bloomturd tellling what i can or can not drink .

You did not do any favors for anyone but yourself...you lived in a horrible place because that's what you could afford...welcome to adulthood in NYC! As for rent stabilization, it is one of the reasons why you HAD to live in those types of conditions, it limits the supply, increasing prices for everyone else artificially and keeps neighborhood stale, stagnant and oftentimes ghetto because people can't/won't leave. Why would a LL renovate and invest huge amounts only to get the same paultry rents, or impossible to get out lousy/dead beat tenants = dilapidated buildings and bad nabes. Thank you rent stabilization!

So thank rent stabilization for making you live in a horrible apt...but don't expect any credit from me because you lived somewhere you could afford. Get over yourself.
Well said Sobro. Lilly has no idea what she is talking about. She's one of those...
