Based on this, you should have succession rights and you might want to look at
the succession rights info on the web site (do a search for the word

: The lease is up for renewal this August and she should
: be receiving her renewal lease the beginning of March. When should
: I notify the landlord of her intention to vacate? Do I wait for the renewal
: to be offered or notify them before? Does she notify the owner or do I?
: Is there a form letter for this sort of thing. Also, beginning with this
: lease the rent is over $2000. Does that have any bearing on the succession?

Unless your income is over $250,000, I don't think the $2,000 will be an issue,
but owners will fight to keep you from your succession rights. It can
be tricky. I strongly suggest you get a lawyer who knows succession
rights to walk you through the process. If the owner sees you with a lawyer,
he will be less likely to cause problems.
