Q: Lease break due to luck in cooking gas and construction works in the building.


I’m renting an apartment in nyc for almost a year. A month and a half ago due to a leak, the cooking gas in all the building was turned off. The landlord said it’ll take a week. Since then we don’t have cooking gas, there is an awful noise in the building that prevents us from doing our daily chores. Also, the constructors going to our apt without a notice. When I told the landlord that I want to leave she said that I would need to pay the rent till the lease end. It is impossible to live like this. What are my legal rights?

A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. Your post remains open for three days, and is probably something that the landlord-tenant attorneys here would have the most insight about. There's no guarantee that all questions are answered, but if you wanted to try reposting and adding Landlord-Tenant as a category, there could be better chances of a response. Good luck
