I've lived in the same rent stabilized apartment in NYC for 7 years. I
renew this lease each year for the next. Over the past 7 years, I've sent
back the signed lease to the landlord between 2 and 30 days before the
lease was to expire. This year, I got an eviction notice on July 10 stating
I didn't get the lease back in time. Would a judge take into consideration
the fact that regardless of the rule, a precedent was followed by me and
accepted by the landlord each year until now? It's pretty strange that they
decide to crack down now after they lost their bid for the repeal of the
rent control guidelines.
Coincidently, I sent the renewal to the landlord two days prior to my
receipt of the eviction notice.
