N.Y. Military Law Section 311-B
Cancellation without penalty of certain additional rental contracts


1.

The provision of this section shall apply to any rental contracts in which (a) such a contract was executed by or on the behalf of a person, who, after the execution of such contract, entered active military service, and

(b)

where such entry into military service now renders it impossible for such person to abide by the terms and conditions of the rental contract.

2.

A person who enters into a rental contract for goods or services not otherwise addressed by the provisions of this article, who enters into active military service subsequent to the execution of such contract, and where his or her military activation causes it to be impossible for him or her to abide by the terms and conditions of the rental contract, is entitled to cancel such contract at no penalty and with a full refund of any moneys which may have been placed on deposit.

3.

Any such contract may be terminated by notice in writing delivered to the contractor by such person in active military service canceling his or her rental contract within one week of his or her receipt of orders to report for military service, and such notice shall include a copy of the orders in question. Delivery of such notice shall be accomplished by certified mail duly addressed to the contractor.
