: : I went to court with my landlord last year and the judge dismissed the case because he said that it was illegal for the landlord not to have offered me another lease when my last one expired. In NY landlords are obligated to offer tenants a new lease at least 120 days prior to the exsisting leases expires. Check with the Tenants Rights guide in this page to further investigate...
Arite: you must be rent stabilized: only those tenants get the 120-day notice of renewal.
She is a co-op subtenant: she only gets a 30-day notice to leave, not automatic renewal unless it is actually written into her lease.
But the advice to read the Tenants Rights Guide is solid. Click on NY Tenant on http://www.tenant.net/
