I would like to know if there is any legal period set by law in which a landlord has to give notice to a tenant of a lease renewal and the amount in which the rent increase will be. I am in a non-regulated building, a co-op, so no rent stablization laws apply. My landlord just served me with a lease renewal, whereby he is giving me 10 days to sign or he will rent my apartment. He is demanding over a 35% increase in my rent, and I am very upset about it. He also wants additional security when he already has first and last month. I talked to him over two months ago asking about my lease renewal, and have called several times since then. Is there some sort of minimal amount of time I should have to consider this pathetic blackmail? Ten days seems unfair to me, and hopefully illegal.
Any insight would be appreciated.
