Renewal Leases: Tenant Has No Right To Cancel

Posted by Mark Smith on August 06, 2000 at 16:34:24:

Someone in this forum, other than Richard, keeps posting erroneous information, using at least two different names.

He has most frequently said that rent stabilized tenants have a right to cancel a renewal lease, with 30-days' notice to the landlord. This simply isn't true.

If the original vacancy lease contained such a provision, or if the landlord agreed to add such a provision to a renewal lease, only then would the tenant would have the right to cancel the renewal lease, with 30-days' notice to the landlord.
