: : Can any of the the provisions in the old lease be enforced?

: If you are subject to rent stabilization, you actually benefit from the landlord's delay in offering you a renewal lease because the landlord cannot get a rent increase until 120 days after you are offered the renewal.

: If you are not subject to rent stabilization, you become a month-to-month tenant, which means that the landlord can terminate your tenancy by giving you 30 days formal notice.

: I often advise rent stabilized clients to send the landlord a letter confirming that they would be willing to renew the lease if a renewal were offered. Send the letter by first class mail with proof of mailing. Such a letter is handy if the landlord should claim later that he mailed you the renewal notice but you failed to respond.
I am not rent stabilized. Even though now I am month-to-month (because the lease ended over a year ago, can any of the the provisions in the old lease still be enforced?
