RENEWAL LEASE FORM WITH INSTRUCTIONS (NEW YORK ONLY)

 

INSTRUCTIONS TO OWNER

 

At least two copies of this completed Renewal Lease Form must be mailed to the tenant in occupancy or personally delivered not more than 150 days and not less than 120 days prior to the end of the tenant’s lease term. The owner shall also make this Form available in Spanish upon request of the tenant.

 

If the owner offers a Renewal Lease less than 120 days prior to the expiration of the existing lease, the lease term selected by the tenant shall begin at the tenant’s option either (1) on the date a renewal lease would have begun had a timely offer been made or (2) on the first rent payment date occurring no less than 120 days after the date that the owner does offer the lease to the tenant. The guidelines rate applicable for such lease shall be no greater than the rate in effect on the commencement date of the lease for which a timely offer should have been made, and the increased rental shall not begin before the first rent payment date occurring no less than 120 days after such offer is made.

 

The owner must fully complete PART A on the reverse side of this Form explaining how the new rent has been computed. Any rent increase must not exceed the applicable Rent Guidelines Board adjustment(s) authorized by the Rent Stabilization Code.

Failure to file a current registration for this housing accommodation with DHCR bars the collection of any guidelines increase after such registration should have been filed. This sanction is lifted prospectively upon the filing of a proper registration.

This Renewal Lease must be offered on the same terms and conditions as the expiring lease, except for such additional provisions as are permitted by law or the Rent Stabilization Code which must be set forth by the owner and attached to this Form. If there are any additional lawful agreements between the owner and tenant, a copy signed by both parties must also be attached to this Form. The tenant must return to the owner all copies of this Form, completed and signed by the tenant in PART B on the reverse side of this Form.

 

The owner must furnish the tenant with a fully executed copy of this Renewal Lease Form bearing the tenant’s and owner’s signatures in PART B, and a copy of the DHCR Lease Rights Rider, within 30 days of the owner’s receipt of this Form signed by the tenant. The owner shall also make the Lease Rights Rider available in Spanish upon request of the tenant. Service of this fully executed Form, upon the tenant, constitutes a binding renewal lease. If the owner fails to furnish the tenant with a fully executed copy of this Form within 30 days of receipt of the Form signed by the tenant, the tenant shall continue to have all rights afforded by the Rent Stabilization Law and Code. In addition, the owner may not collect a rent increase from the tenant, and will be barred from commencing any action or proceeding against the tenant bases upon non-renewal of lease.
