its not that hard to break a rent controlled tenants lease. just wait for the 1st repair request to replace say a broken fixture or an old leaky faucet. stall fixing it and let the tenant change it on their own.

inspect the apartment after and file eviction proceedings for unauthorized modification as per the lease agreement. the tenant needs an order from housing court to make a repair on his own and bill the landlord.

very unethical to do but legal. so legal thhat the nys bar held aseminar to discus the ethics of such cases.

It sure isn't hard to break a rent-controlled tenant's lease when the tenant is unsophisticated, unrepresented, and ignorant of his or her rights. When you stall on not fixing things, a savy rent-controlled tenant will bring housing-code violations against the landlord. We're resigned to the fact that our rent-controlled tenant will only be evicted by death.

Go for it!

As an ex New Yorker of 10 years and now living in Cape Town, I would say go for Thailand, great place, land of the smiles. You will never look back, sorry been to New Jersey and it is no Thailand. Americans are really nervous about moving overseas, but those that do, often dont regret it. Funny enough, we are considering Thailand, great weather, great food, reasonable rentals etc. Life is too short to spend it all in NYC, its a must do for a while, but if you are brave enough to do the move to Thailand, I would say go for it!
