My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: New York
My fiance and I currently live in Cheektowaga NY. We signed a lease and t was signed and dated by the landlord. We received the first month free, and were supposed to begin payment on Nov 1 2008. Before Nov 5, when the rent was due, a new lease arrived stating there was a typographical error, that the management of the landlord did not approve of and the lease was reissued.
Under the new lease the rent was raised and kept the terms of the previous lease. The only thing changed in the lease was the rent under the clasue there was a typographical error. I was informed by a family friend that because they reissued the lease and we have not signed, we have till the end of the month to find a new residence and vacate the premises or renew the lease. Is this true and what can we be held liable for?
