    Default Tenant Rights After Landlord Reissues the Lease

    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?

    Default Re: Tenant Rights After Landlord Reissues the Lease

    There's a lease, signed and dated by all parties? Then there's a binding lease. I have no idea who "the management of the landlord" is, or what their authority is to try to issue a new lease, but if the lease is signed by the landlord it's approved by the landlord.

    The typographical error is what?

    The Landlord and management is Musarra Partners LLC. The Typographical error was never stated. they stated the lease was not accepted even thought their assistant signed the lease in front of us. We are now served with court papers because we have been unable to afford the new rent they claim.
    I apologize for the late response.
