I have been living in the same apartment for 6 years. I have been renewing my lease every two years. Recently, my lease expired and I expected it to be renewed, as usual, for another two years. My landlord told me it was no longer a policy of their's to give out leases. Is this legal? I finally got him to give me a lease but it's only for one year instead of the two I would have preferred. My understanding is that it is at the discretion of the tenant whether or not to renew a lease, and if that lease has always been, from the start, a two year lease, than the landlord is obliged to renew the lease for that term if the tenant so desires. Am I right? What can I do about it if I am? I live in Queens, NYC. I don't know if I am rent stabilized or controlled. How do I find out?
