Okay, I'll try to explain this to the best of my ability.
The building I live in (east village) has an attacted store front. 2 months ago they started
advertising to rent the space. They didn't have any response to the ad so I asked
if they would consider dividing the store front (it has a rear courtyard entry) into
2 parts, I would rent the back space for a 1000.00 per month. I love the space and
it's a good deal for the size. They installed a shower and put in a fridge.
I've been living in a space for almost a month (as of Aug 1st) without a lease.
They want to give me a commercial lease and I don't want to sign because I would
then have no rights.
Keep in mind that I lived in this building and still hold a 2 year lease on my
I heard someone say once that if you occupy a space for more than 30 days then the
apartment is yours...commercial or otherwise. Is this total BS?
I'm really lost and haven't a clue what to do about this. Although it might not
have been a great idea to move here the space was too appealing and no-one informed me
that I WOULD NOT get a residential lease.
Could anyone give me some insite to what I'm dealing with? Or some good
resourses to start reading?
