Asked by Marjorie Howard, Brooklyn, NY • Tue May 7, 2013
My lease is up at the end of this month (my roommates and I decided not to renew). A broker (who is not associated with our management company) contacted us directly and requested a copy of our keys to show the apartment to people interested in renting. I imagine she got our telephone number from the landlord (even though that situation in itself is a bit sketchy since a new contact claimed that our previous landlord is no longer our current landlord however the previous landlord still claims to be).
My roommates and I are not comfortable giving a copy of the apartment keys to a broker or anyone who isn't associated with our property management company (and find it odd that she contacted the tenant directly rather than going through the landlord). We spoke with that broker and explained that someone is here most of the time to allow access to show the apartment (one of us works from home)
What are my rights as a tenant in NYC when it comes to showing an apartment?
