You generally need 24 months unless she's over 62. See the succession
regs on the web site (they're not updated but I don't think the changes
apply here). I would consult a lawyer (and the DHCR regs) as her refusing
to sign a renewal lease might waive your rights to succession. In essence,
you would be asserting your rights to succeed to the same string of
leases, so breaking that might be problematic.Be careful. The owner
will probably ignore you as they will want to intimidate and discourage
you, and they might even challenge it. Again, check the regs and see
a lawyer -- these things can get complicated.
