In Reply to: Lease Renewal Questions posted by Kristen R on December 04, 1997 at 00:11:53:
: I have a rent stabilized apartment in Manhattan. My lease expires on January 15th and my landlord has not said anything or sent any paperwork regarding a renewal. On the other hand, he hasn't said anything about kicking us out.
: I have 3 questions:
: 1) What are our rights regarding a renewal?
: 2) How should I handle the fact that I haven't gotten a renewal? I thought about sending him a certified letter indicating our desire to renew but am not sure if this is the correct next step.
: 3) My roommate plans to move out in March and I will take over paying the rent on the entire apartment. Her father is the guarantor. Should we tell the landlord now or both renew and I'll tell him if I renew again in 1999?
: Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
If your name is one the lease, you have the right to a renewal lease.
Don't worry that you haven't received it. It's the owners responsibility.
As far as I can tell, it doesn't matter either way whether your roomate signs the renewal or not.
