Brooklyn, NY asked in Small Claims and Landlord - Tenant for New York

Q: How much can NYC renters be charged for three days in an apartment?

On a month to month lease, we are moving out on the 3rd and new tenants occupy on the 4th. The building manager is saying what they charge us is based on a percentage or what the other tenants don't pay. This all sounds false and shady. We paid every month, never late they walked through the apt and said it looks great. I'm worried they are trying to steal our deposit. What are my rights?

A: Your question may have gotten overlooked for two weeks because of the categories posted under. You could try reposting and adding "Landlord-Tenant" as a category. There's no guarantee every question here is picked up, but you'd have better chances of a L-T attorney seeing your post there. Good luck
