Why did you bother to write that whole thing out?
Pointless.
A G A I N -----I know I'm not entitled to ANYTHING---
But the money was offered, I declined it.
Now I want it.
Period.

"Why don't you get offline and think of what you want to do, and ask him already, and go move. Use your brain, you've got plenty of suggestions here already and you've been harping on this for months."

Thats exactly what I'm doing---getting suggestions.....not opinions on what you think of what I'm doing.

Wow such hypocrates in this thread. The reason why the landlord wants to buy him out is because the landlord is greedy himself and knows he can make so much more like the greedy bastards they are. They continously have bought out rent controlled apts in poor neighborhoods like Bedstuy and have flipped them around to the tenth power. So why can't this poor ****** make something out of it. My whole neighborhood is practically gone because Ratner the rat did the same to build his arena at the Atlantic Yards. So can't blame me for having so much anomosity towards them!

What's the big deal?
THEY OFFERED.
How do u not understand that?
THEY OFFERED.
WHY are you here?

They offered? Then simply call them up and say, 'I now accept'?

What is the problem?

Is your manner of thought so inherently crooked, that you cannot fathom simply making a straight offer?

You're concerned about the LL discovering your existing intention to move? Then simply prepare yourself to move on the deal QUICKLY!!! How?

Find a competent attorney, advise him of your desires and intentions, and ask him/her to represent you. Then sit back, watch and wait.

YOUR attorney will contact the LL's attorney and make the proposal. Your attorney will draw up an Agreement and fax/send it to the LL's attorney. It shouldn't take more than a couple days to a couple of weeks. The attorneys will hash out the agreement with both yours and LLs interest protected, the papers will be signed----that's it!

Move out whenever you agreed to, and the LL discovering your prior intentions will be irrelevant, of no consequence.

Again, I ask why are you here? Do realize its because of a serious flaw in your character---which s/b recognized and corrected.

heres my take, and those of you who are familiar with our position on this know we offer lease buy outs...

when a tenant wants to break a lease we charge them for as long as it takes to re-rent .... when we want to break a lease we pay the tenant.....


if there is no lease to break and the tenant is moving anyway at renewal its extorition in my opinion to go to a landlord and ask for money when your leaving anyway and enjoyed below market rent to boot. thats just un-ethical and taking advantage of a situation that should be reserved for when your not going on your own and need to be rewarded for the hardship of breaking a contract...

its the honor system and taking the money in this situation isnt honerable. out of the 9 apartments over looking central park we sold 7,,, 5 asked for the money . i have no idea if they were not really moving anyway....
2 were very ethical and passed on the 50k because they were moving on their own...i commend them for their honesty.... 2 are left

The problem with the OP/tenant is his crooked character---he thinks everyone including the LL has a similar crooked character. A professional LL won't care if he/the tenant intended to move before I paid him to do so. His crooked character can't really conceive of the true and real benefit to the LL---specifically what the landlord is paying for.

He thinks the LL's offer of buy-out is something nefarious---which triggered the OP's bad character gene. He thinks he needs to 'get over' on the LL.

The LL probably stands to make millions and this tenant is burning the midnight light over $25k!!!
