New York, None which is why I am here. I need the expertise
None which is why I am here. I need the expertise of a NYC tenant landlord attorney. The past 5 yrs I have paid a year's rent upfront at each lease renewal. I was able, and required since I work for myself and do not have pay stubs or income showing 50 x the rent which is high. My lease is up the 30th. I received the new lease due the 12th (next week) with full payment which I do not have this time. I am working on some projects and hoping to get contracts. I would like to ask for 90 days paying month to month to maintain my good standing. How do I best write this up? What happens if they don't agree? What happens when my lease is up? I want to send July's rent with the renewal but the agreement is for a year and they won't accept. Thank you, ***** ***** needless to say, very anxious and stressed about my situation. … read more

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
