I don't believe that there is rent stabilization in Buffalo. However, you didn't make yourself very clear. Is this a co-op or condo? You talk about "my landlord" and "the apartment complex owner." Does the lease require you or the landlord to give any type of notice before the expiration? If not, you can move out on or before April 30th without giving any notice.
: My current 1 year lease in Buffalo, NY expires on 4/30/99. I was planning on renewing the lease until yesterday (4/5/99) when I found a much nicer apartment for only slightly less money. I have not received any form of written notice as to my intentions to renew my lease from my landlord or the apartment complex owner. Today, when speaking to the landlord I was told that there may be a problem because I have not given 30 days notice as to my intentions not to renew the lease. According to the landlord I am going to have to discuss this issue with the owner. What I have found here however states that the landlord must send me a form "RPT-8" from the DHCR at least 120 and not more than 150 days from the date the lease expires. I have two quesions about this.
: 1. Is this still a valid law?
: 2. If it is, what is the actual NYS law this falls under, include article and section number if possible.
