Greetings!
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.

So, essentially, the question is how to be dishonest? I think this is the wrong place for that.

How is it being dishonest? They offered it to me last year.
I wasn't ready to move. Now I am ready, and I'd like to get the money they offered me last year.

You aren't owed ANYTHING....you got to live in NYC for cheap rent for 20 years..if anything, YOU owe your landlord for all the rent money he lost while having you in the apartment

"if anything,YOU owe your landlord for all the rent money he lost while having you in the apartment"

are you kidding me? Pray tell- just how much more than $800.00 per month would you propose this gentleman owes his landlord for renting the grandiose sum of 180 sq ft? I think this guy should get a medal AND a ticker tape parade for living there for 20 years with a wife to boot! I guess on the bright side it won't take them too long to pack!

FIRST OFF----I never said I was owed ANYTHING.
They offered, and I declined.
Now I'd like to take them up on it.
Clearly this Mod is a landlord with his own agenda.
I asked a question and you try tried to beat me up with your opinion.
Either answer my question----or don't.
Your OPINION is not needed here.

When you post on a message board you open yourself up to all sorts of opinions. I think you should just call him up and tell him you've reconsidered and would like to take him up on his offer if it's still available.

You're leaving ANYWAY. Your landlord doesn't know it. So you want him to pay you for leaving as you were planning to do regardless of any other money. That's just greedy. And dishonest.

And nobody forces people to live in their apartments. These people stayed out of choice. If they stayed 20 years, they WANTED to stay 20 years.
