In Reply to: Renewal of current lease. posted by Jim on July 23, 1999 at 17:53:13:
: We have been verbally told by a collections agent that they will not renew our current lease which ends Sept.30, 1999 because of our history of late payments. Do they have to notify us by mail that our lease will not be renewed? We presently are paid up to date, and they are holding THREE MONTHS RENT as a security deposit. If we receive nothing in writing regarding not renewing our lease do we have any recourse to renew? Or, without any notice of renewal can we be evicted on September 30th? HELP!
Where do you live? if NY: Stabilized or not? what, exactly, does your lease say about renewals?
Regardless: the general rule: yes, it must be in writing, usually 30 or more days before the end of the lease, by the landlord or his managing agent (NOT by any collection agent), etc. If you don't leave, they will start eviciton proceedings, which could take a few months.
