A renewal lease gives the landlord the right to collect a higher rent. You're still protected by the rent stabilization laws without a renewal lease.
You could file a complaint with DHCR to get a renewal lease, and any rent increase would not be retroactive. But you're probably better off doing nothing and continue paying the rent in your original lease.
: My landlord has not offered me a new lease even though the old one finished about a year or two ago. It used to be that if you were in a rent stabilized apartment and the landlord did not offer to renew your lease, your old one was still valid. Is this till true? Should I take action against the landlord for not offering the lease renewal or leave things as they are? We had a big argument today over the heat and they yelled at me telling me that if I didn't like it I should 'get the hell out'.
