I live in Goldens Bridge, NY (Westchester County)in a mutiple family apartment building owned by the LL. My present lease expires May 31, 2001. In the previous lease it stated I must give 60 days notice if I were to leave and the landlord must give 60 days notice of a rent increase. The LL just provided a draft of the new lease on May 9, which included an increase of 8%. I was expecting 3-4%, which was the increase for the last 3 years I lived there.
: Question - what are my rights? I would like to leave but need time to find a place. I do not want to sign a new lease with the present LL. Can he force me out on June 1? I had no intentions of leaving until he gave me the new lease (which was NOT given 60 days in advance). What are the eviction laws for Westchester?
: Please help!!!!!! Thank you I appreciate any response.
