: 1. If I read the laws correctly, the new owners have no obligation to offer me a lease renewal at any particular time, unlike in a regulated apartment where they would have had to send me a renewal offer last month. They don't even have to talk to me about it. True?
: 2. The old owners should have sent me the new owners' names and addresses via registered mail last month. True? (They didn't, but I don't see what good that does me.)
I'm not aware of such an obligation--except that common sense tells me the new landlord would introduce himself to you so he can get the rent.
: 3. The house apparently has a fairly serious building code violation, which I didn't realize until the new owner accidentally mentioned it. It will not be easy for them to fix. Does this give me any kind of advantage? (I doubt it.)
Unless it makes your apartment uninhabitable, I dont see what you can do with a building code violation.
: p.s. Yes, I know I should have moved into a rent-stabilized place, but last year I didn't have a lot of time or money or knowledge... and if I have to move now, it looks like it'll be even harder.
Don't kick yourself--finding a rent stabilized apartment nowadays is very tough, particularly since that idiotic so-called "luxury decontrol" was enacted.
