NEW YORK CITY APARTMENTS FOR RENT (1-12 MONTHS)

While about half of our inventory is short term furnished apartments for rent direct from the landlord or agent, the other half is tenants who are breaking their lease or sublets. Most are no fee rentals. Often landlords will allow you to break your lease if you can provide a qualified renter to take it over. Post your apartment so a NYC or New Jersey renter can find your short term sublet or leasebreak. Also read 3 Steps to Break My Lease and over 300 customer testimonials!

NYC Furnished Short Term Rentals

The real scoop on Furnished Short Term Rentals in NYC

Getting a furnished short term rental in NYC is not easy as you may think, although Leasebreak makes it much easier.  The reason furnished short term rentals are so hard to obtain is because they make up a very small percentage of available NYC apartments. Landlords would rather have longer term leases, and as long as the vacancy rates in NYC remain low, landlords have the leverage to dictate the terms. To landlords, furnished short term rentals are just too risky.    

Before Leasebreak hit the scene in 2013, furnished short term rentals were also very difficult to find because there was no one place people could go to see the thousands of available furnished short term rentals at any given time.  You had to look on multiple websites, or ask every landlord if they would allow furnished short term rentals (95% said no). Leasebreak’s job is to provide one marketplace for all of these furnished short term rentals (along with rooms for rent, leasebreaks, and sublets!).  You can post and search for free!

DEFINITON OF "SHORT TERM" and "FURNISHED"
First, let’s define what we mean by “short term”. In NYC, the “short” in “furnished short term rentals” means furnished apartments with minimum lease terms of between 30 days and 12 months, but mostly we are talking about furnished apartments with minimum lease terms of between 30 days and 6 months.  Be careful if you are looking for a furnished short term rental under 30 days. In Manhattan most furnished leases that are less than 30 days are illegal. The NY attorney general even wrote a report a few years ago stating that 72% of the rentals on Airbnb violated NYC rental laws.

Second, let’s define what we mean by “furnished”. Let’s first talk about your standard 12 month rental.  In NYC, almost all 12 month minimum leases come “unfurnished”. You need to bring (or rent) your own furniture.  But - perhaps obviously - furnished short term rentals come “furnished”. However, “furnished” can mean different things to different people:  

The meaning of “furnished” in the term “furnished short term rentals” really runs the gamut.  It could mean furnished apartments which include only beds and rugs, or furnished apartments that include everything from linens to toothbrushes and everything in between. 

PRICING AND FEES ON FURNISHED SHORT TERM RENTALS
You will notice that the price of a “Furnished short term rental” compared to a more normal 12 month rental can be anywhere from 10% to 100% higher, and up!  Also note that the price really spikes in the summer months when the demand is ferocious for furnished short term apartments as many young professionals are looking for places to stay during their summer internships.  

Of course, there may be hidden fees too on furnished short term rentals, so make sure you always ask the lister about the following: cleaning fees, application fees, credit check fees, and hotel taxes.  Make sure you have an understanding of all fees, which should all be disclosed on the listing by the way. (If not please let us know!).  

Leasebreak goal is to provide a transparent marketplace to help you find a furnished short term rental.  If you have any questions, please drop us a line using the blue “feedback” button on this page.
