: i live in brooklyn, ny in a rent stablizied apt for the last 21 years.
: i have a 2 year lease. my mother's name was on the lease, but she passed away 1 year ago, the lease was then put in my name. today i received a letter that said, "tenants succeeded after 6/19/97" & it gave the beginning & end term of the lease which is 4/99-8/31/01. i know what that means, but what i don't know is why did he put that date, since we have been living here for over 20 years. i did call him, but he is on vacation, so i just wanted to know if i can find out what this means ahead of time.
: thanks

The first renewal lease in your name should start at the same time your mother's renewal lease would have started. Rent stabilized leases get renewed for a 1 or 2 year term which is the tenants' choice, not the landlord's. So if her lease ended 5/30/00, your lease would start at 6/1/00 and run 1 or 2 years. NOTE: you do not need and should not sign a whole new lease: this renewal has to be made on the official DHCR lease renewal form.
