By not having a lease both you and your landlord can terminate your agreement within thirty days notice. You are considered a month to month tenant. The landlord can also raise your rent month to month with 30 days notice as well....if you do sign a lease be prepared to vacate within 30 days...it won't necessarily be at your convenience....why not be honest with the landlord and ask for a 6 month lease instead? because once the landlord learns of your intentions and realizes you kept him in the dark he might be inclined to give you your notice....
: I have been living in an apartment in Brooklyn for approximately 5 years, and have payed rent without fault every month during that period of time. Each year I have signed a 1 year lease in January. This year, I am looking to relocate to Texas, and the landlord is asking for his lease. Is it within my rights not to sign the lease, and continue to pay rent for the duration of my stay in the apartment?
