: I have lived in a rent stablized, 12 unit brownstone for 25 years. Every two years, I sign another lease with my landlady. My current lease runs from March 2000 to March 2002. I recently noticed that my landlady inadvertently wrote the begin-end dates as both beginning and ending "March 2000." The lease is dated March 2000. Is this a valid lease until March 2002, or should I ask my landlady to initial a correction on it?
: Thank you for your help. I have a feeling its a not a real problem, but I want to make sure, since my landlady is very ill and if she does die before this edition of my lease is up, I want to make sure I'm legally protected.
At the bottom of the DHCR-approved form the tenant checks off her choice of a one or two-year lease. If you did, this would cover it. Besides: you've been paying the 2-yr, not 1-yr, increase rate... Also: all new landlords will be required to honor your lease and renew it until the LLs kill off rent stabilization.
