It's not necessarily a problem that you don't have a lease. I haven't had one for 3 1/2 years myself. If you are rent-stabilized, you are protected by the original lease and the rent laws. If the rent is good, you may not want to rock the boat by insisting on a lease. You should check with DHCR and see if it's registered however. Make sure the landlord is not registering it as preferential rent, or exempt from rent stabilization for some reason.
: I have a rent stabilized studio apartment in NYC. I've been without a lease for the last 6 years (I've had a lease prior). The good news is that I haven't had a rent increase but, what are my rights? I have ask the landlord on several occasions about the lease to no avail. Can she evict me? Does she have to provide me with a lease? I just don't want to lose the best deal in NYC! Any info. would be helpful. Thank you.
