I am a good tenant who has lived in an apartment in a Brooklyn brownstone for 7 years (no rent-control, 4 units in building). Since the new owners took over 5 years ago, each time the lease is up they take months to give us a new lease. This time, our lease was up Jan 1st and we have requested a new lease with rent checks Dec. 1st, Jan 1st and March 1st - to no response. I am wondering what are our rights while we are "in between" leases? Is this right? Could they not renew? I am confused as they could have gotten an increase from us by now...
Also, my roommate, whose name is also on the lease (or was before the lease ended Jan 1st), is moving out. Can I sign the lease solo and find a roommate on my own (knowing I would be responsible for the entire rent)? Because I have been there so long, I would rather have the relationship with the landlord myself and not involve an new roommate with the lease.
Any information is appreciated!
