Attorney With Over A Decade Of Experience In Leasing Issues
Rental property in Queens and throughout New York City is at a premium, particularly dwellings that are rent-stabilized. Once it is lost, the chances of replacing it are minimal at best. Proactive steps must be taken in not only signing a renewed lease, but also ensuring that you secure the rental agreement with the landlord’s signature.
At The Law Office of Seth Rosenfeld, Esq., in Forest Hills, New York, being first responders providing fast responses is vital in cases involving lease renewals and cancellations. Attorney Seth Rosenfeld — founder of our law firm — focuses on proactive legal representation to ensure protection of our clients’ rights. He has over 15 years of experience helping clients resolve leasing issues.
Proactive Representation With Cancellation Or Renewal Of Leases
Renters must protect a precious asset with careful planning and sound strategies, which includes retaining a lawyer if needed. A landlord must send you a renewal lease form between 90 and 150 days before the existing rent-stabilized lease expires. If you want to renew, you must take careful steps to secure your dwelling and protect your rights.
Proof of mailing helps create a paper trail and shows your due diligence. Rent payments (agreed upon in the old lease) with the legal regulated increase must continue. Cashed checks following the lease’s expiration show consent to continue the agreement.
Unregulated leases present more challenges. The property owner is under no obligation to renew. A landlord may cancel a lease to retaliate following a claim of tenant rights violations. Our job is to help overcome those obstacles.
