Using yet another name, this person has posted the same mis-information again.
I see no laws or legal decisions cited in his message to support this erroneous position. A rent stabilized renewal lease continues the same terms and conditions as the original vacancy lease, except for the amount of the rent and the security deposit.
The only exception would be a new requirement of law, such as, a rider about window guards, if the original vacancy lease was signed before the window guard law was passed.
From DHCR Fact Sheet #4: "The renewal lease must keep the same terms and conditions as the expiring lease unless a change is necessary to comply with a specific law or regulation. Those lawful provisions and any other written agreements between the owner and the tenant that would alter the expiring lease should be attached to the Renewal Lease Form."

: What are you taking about? If I understand this, if you move in in December and you stay there two - three years (with renewal leases) your telling everyone on this board that you can loose your deposit or get penalized if you decide to move out in any other month other than December???
: That's why idiots like you confuse people into paying additional fees and penalties to managing agents and landlords when they really don't have to. A renewal lease continues the tenancy and allows the option to move with a 30 day notice.
: : 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
