breaking a lease in new york for job-related reasons

My friend was laid off several months ago in NY and can no longer afford her lease. I've heard that for job-related reasons (such as moving for a new job) that you can break a lease legally, does anyone know about this? What have the many others who must have found themselves in this situation done? Clearly its not so easy to find someone else to take over your lease as a lot of people have lost their jobs and can't afford a lease. Please help us!! Thanks!

creepy roommate...question about getting out of the lease?

I am a 25 year old graduate student. I signed a lease with a 20 year old undergrad who has nothing in common with me, except that we are from the same country. She seems fine at first, just socially awkward, but after a month of living together she began to be extremely rude/inpolite, and show signs of hostility. [more inside]

Why the change of heart Mr. Man?

I have been a great tenant for 2 years. I keep the place clean, I am quiet, I take out everyone's recycling, pay my rent on time (occasionally early), pay for my own carpet cleaning once a year to name a few of my glowing tenancy points. I have not physically renewed my lease in that time, but it states on the lease that I need to state my intention to stay and my lease is automatically renewed. Great! This year my landlord wants me to physically resign lease. No problem. He put a letter in my mail box with the new lease info. Same as always, so I said I would be over to sign. But two days ago he decided to change the terms... [more inside]

Forced into the car market: Lease or Buy?

We just lost our car in a garage fire, should we now lease or buy? We live in a condo, and a bunch of us homeowners lost our cars (and other belongings) in a garage fire. My wife and I want to know the hive-mind's opinion on whether we should lease or buy now that we're forced into the market for a new car. Some information: we're "tree-huggers" so we appreciate good gas mileage (and we're enamored with the upcoming 3rd gen Honda Insight). But we also drive the cars a ton, we drive everywhere. We live in Indianapolis, but our parents and families are on the east coast, so we drive to NYC and the D.C. area multiple times a year; not to mention the Chicago area, too. So that would also be a consideration whether we lease or buy... Thanks for anyone's opinion.

Is it okay to sever a new lease within a certain amount of time in Ontario?

I've heard that one can sever certain contracts they sign in Ontario if it's within the first 10 days of signing. If this is true, does it also apply to a lease on a house?
