Subject: Re: staying beyond lease in co-op
The owner does not have to let you stay. However, if you refuse to leave, they have to get a legal eviction to get you out. That processs could take a few months.
However, if you want to get another apt in the same building, you may not want to make trouble. If the owner complains to the coop board about you, I doubt you'll be able to ever rent or buy an apt in that building again. And there is essentially no recourse for a coop board rejection.
: I am currently leasing a co-op, and my lease expires June 30.
: I would ideally like to stay in the apartment after that date until
: another (cheaper) apartment opens up in my building. What rights, if any,
: do I have to stay month-to-month after my lease expires? Is it a matter
: of asking the landlord and hoping they'll agree to it, or do I have rights
: in this matter?
