In Reply to: Renewal lease without signature--follow up posted by cat lady on September 03, 2001 at 17:37:35:
It's just infinately letter to get the lease signed. Keep an unsigned copy and send the orig back (certified mail, return rec't) with a note asking them to please have the LL sign it and return to you.
Rent regulated: you're still protected under the Rent Stabilization Code, the same terms and conditions as your expiring(expired)lease.
It's assumed you're either a 1 or 2 year renewal. You could file with DHCR "LL's refusal to furnish tenant with copy of renewal lease", but I'm sure the lack of signature was an oversight;-)
Several years ago I was in court with LL, without a renewal lease, desperately wanted one, and the judge told me that I didn't need one.
Who knows? It's just better if you have the signed lease.
Not regulated: LL can give you a 30-day notice to vacate-you'd be considered a month to month tenant. Under the Statute of Frauds, a lease for real property for a term not exceeding 1 year is enforceable without there being a writing(lease)(but why risk it?); A lease for a term of 1 year or more is void unless there is a writing (lease)
