If you were served with a summons and complaint, you will need to submit responding papers within a specified time depending upon how you were served. Suggest retaining an attorney to do so on your behalf and to attempt to negotiate a resolution on your behalf.
The reason it don't auto-renew is that he emailed me stating that he was not renewing it about 2 months ago. It was a 90 day notice via email. Not in writing. He want's to move in our apartment on September 1st and we can't find a like place around here. My wife is on unemployment... Read more »
Unless you are protected by a lease or rent regulation, a landlord does not have to renew your lease. However, if you do not voluntarily surrender possession, the landlord must start a court case and obtain a judgment before you can be evicted. If you are current on your rent payments, the Court...Read more »
Title is taken by an individual or entity, not the land. If the same owner takes title to both the dominant and servient estates, then the easement is extinguished through the "merger" of the estates. I hope this helps answer your question.
My father died more than 10 years ago, and we wish to remove his name from the deed and avoid future probate by including our names on the deed. My mother will retain ownership of her house, but we'd like to get our names on the deed. How would we define the "condition of conveyence"... Read more »

If you used the regular form contract you should be able to get out of it if that is what you want. Many people are in your situation. Your lawyer is probably dragging his feet because he/she only gets paid at closing.
I submitted a offer on a house. The seller countered and I accepted. The seller's agent then called my agent stating there was an escalation offer at ask and could we offer seller a little more. I offered $10,000 more. The seller accepted and signed the paperwork, which is sitting at... Read more »
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, a flood of residential and commercial tenants are seeking to surrender possession and walk away from their lease obligations. Although there is an Executive Order imposing a moratorium on evictions until August 20th, there is not legislation that relieves...Read more »

If the building is subject to Rent Stabilization or other rent regulation, you may be entitled to succession rights provided you lived with your farther for the required time before he passed. Even if that isn’t the case, many landlords would be happy to keep on a good tenant
I'm thinking of converting my cellar into a one bedroom "apartment". It will have a full three fixture bathroom, a kitchen fixture, a door connecting to the outside and most likely a 3x2 window to the outside. I'll be adding a fire alarm and a monoxide detector as well for... Read more »
Why not just make it legal and convert your home into a two family? You are not correct about there being no inspections. Also, you cannot enforce a lease of an illegal space. It also will hinder any sale or refinancing. Finally, it violates your insurance, and could lead to a lack of coverage....Read more »
Whether or not the agreement you made was notarized is not what protects you in this instance. Instead, Gov. Cuomo's moratorium on evictions in connection with the COVID-19 crisis provides you with protections. See Executive Order 202.28. In addition, the landlord still needs a judgment of...Read more »
Of course, you can always call the lender. However, if you are not the original borrower, it is unlikely the loan could be reinstated but if you qualify they may be able to offer you a loan to essentially purchase the property.
As we sit here, the NYC law was changed to nullify personal guarantees. Thus, the landlord cannot do so. However, there are constitutional and jurisdictional issues that make this law suspect, so it is unclear now what will happen. If you want to break your lease, now is the time to do so, as...Read more »

It depends on the terms of your lease. If you took "as is" and there is no representation that it is for office use, you might have problems. If there is such a representation, you have a defense if the landlord comes after you for the money.
The real estate attorneys here could give you the most meaningful input, but you're waiting for a reply and as a general matter, a good way to find out could be to contact attorneys and ask their fees. As with attorneys in any field, you could ask their area of focus, their experience, and...Read more »
