My father and I shared an apartment in new york city until he passed away last year. I had no money and nowhere else to go and was pushed into signing a renewal lease for 1 year. I have 2 months left on the lease and have been waiting to move out. I simply cannot afford it here. Today I looked over the lease and realized its not in my name its in my fathers. Is this lease considered legal. Am i bound to this lease even though it is not under my name? I owe half of this months rent and would like to get out before that debt increases over the next two months. What would be the consequences of doing so?
