Connect Renters with Short-Term Sublets & Leasebreaks

At, our mission is simple:  Connect New York City renters with short term sublets and leasebreaks.  Often landlords will allow you to break your lease if you can provide a qualified renter to take it over. 

Who uses our website?

- Anyone looking for a short term rental, whether you are a real estate agent or a renter 

- Renters looking for a unique opportunity to "take over" a lease between 1 and 12 months in duration

-Tenants who are breaking their lease and need to find a renter.  They post their listing on Leasebreak, for free!

- Broker and landlords who are looking for more specialized traffic for their short-term rentals.  They post their listing on Leasebreak, for free! 

Launched in 2013 and focusing on New York City, started with the realization that finding a short term rental between 1 and 12 months in New York City is very difficult.  Also, people sometimes need to get out of their apartment lease early and therefore need to find a new tenant to take over their lease, assuming their landlord allows it.  We realized that the resources available to help tenants in this situation were extremely limited.  

Enter, where we aim to bring more liquidity to the short term rental market in New York City.  Tenants, brokers, and landlords can post their short term rentals and leasebreaks all in one place, on Leasebreak, and all inquiries would go to them directly. 

We are also trying to improve transparency in the marketplace.  Unlike most other websites, we require the address to be publicly displayed.  Also, we ask everyone posting if they have their landlord's approval, and we publicy display their answer on the listing.  

We would love to hear from you!  Please contact us at:, for any general questions or suggestions you may have, for any problems you are having with the web site, for all PR or media inquiries 

Hope you enjoy using Leasebreak!
