At, our mission is simple:  Connect New York City renters with short term rentals, 12-month rentals, sublets, shares (i.e. rooms for rent), and of course leasebreaks. In terms of "leasebreaks" - which given our name we may be best known for - often landlords will allow you to break your lease if you can provide a qualified renter to take over your rental apartment.   

Who uses our website?

- Anyone looking for a short term rental - or any kind of apartment for rent for that matter -  whether you are a real estate agent or a renter.  While we are well known as the market leader in shorter term rentals, in the last couple of years are have dramatically expanded our inventory beyond just short term rentals and leasebreaks so you can find any kind of aparmtent for rent on our website, including sublets, rooms for rent, 12-month rentals, and of course, leasebreaks.  

-Renters looking for a unique opportunity to "take over" a lease between 1 and 12 months in duration.  You can find some amazing deals in these type of situations that may also just happen to meet your needs perfectly.  

-Tenants who are breaking their lease and need to find a renter.  They post their listing on Leasebreak for free! These types of rentals are what got us started in 2013! 

-Brokers and landlords who are looking for more specialized traffic for their short-term rentals.  They post their listing on Leasebreak, for free!  We are known as the market leader in shorter term rentals in NYC.  

-Tenants, brokers, and landlords looking for traffic on their sublets, 12-month rentals, and rooms for rent.  We are now getting real (and of course free) traffic on these kind of apartments too!  

So, how does it work?

If you wish to POST your short term rental, leasebreak, sublet, room for rent or 12-month rental on, it's easy and free! By pressing the “Post Your Lease” button, you would register and then verify your new account by clicking on the link in the email that is sent to you.  Next, you can enter the details for the short term rental, leasebreak sublet, room for rent or 12-month rental, post pictures, and then "submit" your listing.  If you are a landlord or a real estate agent with several apartments, you can enter multiple listings and then manage them in your “account”.  Your email address will be anonymized at first so prospective renters can contact you without seeing your email address.  However, please note that when you respond they will see your email address in the "from" field. 

If you wish to FIND a short-term rental, room for rent, or sublet and/or you are looking to take over a lease on, it's easy and free! In this case, you want to conduct your search as you would any other real estate website. If you find a property that interests you and wish to contact the person who listed the apartment, you first need to register and verify your account by clicking on the link in the email that is sent to you.  Next, press “contact me” and send the "lister" an email.  Hopefully this results in a viewing and perhaps culminates with you putting in an application on the apartment!   

Enjoy using Leasebreak!
