In Reply to: Owner selling apt. - how much notice should we get? posted by Julian on February 08, 2000 at 13:01:47:
: We've been renting in a condo building for 4 years in NYC.
: We have a lease. Several days ago we found out that
: the owner is selling the apt. We were told that we have
: 15 days to let them knwo if we want to buy the place.
PROBABLY KOSHER: WHAT DOES YOUR LEASE SAY? DO YOU HAVE RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL?
: My questions are:
: * given that our lease expires on Apr. 30 of this year,
: can they force us to move beforehand?
AND WHAT DOES YOUR LEASE SAY ABOUT THIS?
: * is they sell the apt., how much notice do they have to give us
: to move?
NEW OWNER MUST HONOR LEASE. WHEN LEASE ENDS, YOU BECOME MONTH-TO-MONTH TENANT. EITHER OLD OR NEW OWNER THEN GIVES YOU 30-DAY NOTICE. SEARCH ON THOSE TWO PHRASES FOR MORE.
: * should we stay, without a lease, past Apr. 30th, while we look
: for a new place?
YOUR CALL: RENT CAN'T INCREASE UNLESS YOU AGREE TO IT. MORE DETAILS IN YOUR SEARCH RESULTS.
: Any help would be great,
