Landlord Properly Delivered Fully Executed Renewal Lease
LVT Number: #24791
Rent-stabilized tenant complained that landlord didn't return an original fully executed copy of the renewal lease that tenant signed and returned to landlord. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding that landlord had properly delivered a fully executed copy of the renewal lease for the two-year period starting Dec. 1, 2008. Tenant appealed and lost. The DHCR explained that landlord didn't have to return a copy with original signatures. The renewal lease form that landlord used for the renewal included a green carbon copy.
