: Hi,

: I was wondering if anyone has any advice. I live in a rent stabilized apartment in Manhattan (Upper Westside). I am buying a co-op and would like to ask my LL for a reference since I've been a tenant here in good standing for about 7 years. My last lease expired at the end of August (2001), so I am in a good position to give 30 days notice without having to break a lease. However, until I am accepted by the co-op board in my new building, I don't know if I'm actually moving (I am already approved for a mortgage). I would like to ask for a reference, yet I don't want to let her know that I'm leaving until I know for sure (as well as knowing WHEN it will happen). So this is kind of a Catch-22. I've never personally had a problem with the LL, but I know plenty of people in the building who have. Also, my apartment layout on other floors is currently renting out at about $1200 MORE than I'm paying, so I'm sure she will be happy to see me go. I just was wondering about my rights should the purchase of my co-op apartment fall through. Do I have the right to change my mind and stay here? I wouldn't officially be giving notice until I'm approved, but my LL would be alerted to my plans by my asking for the reference.

: Thanks for any advice.

Not a good idea to ask current landlord for reference.

Your landlord is overdue with the official 'offer to renew your lease', whenever you receive it, you will have 60 days to reply. So: don't give notice!

Read about renewal rights yourself on Tenant.Net, NY Tenant Info or on, rent admin.
