I have an expired sublease on office that was bound to original lease. He signed a new lease, I did not. Am I still bound to his new lease term?
Question Details: The tenant I sublease from claims that I am still obligated to stay out the term of his 2nd lease renewal with his landlord. I have never seen this 2nd lease or signed an extension of my original lease that expired 9 years ago. Is there something implied that would bind me to stay out the term of his lease or can I give him proper notice that I am leaving?
Absent some type of automatic renewal clause in your sublease (you'll have to read it and check), once it expired and you stayed on, you became a month-to-month tenant (assuming that you pay your rent monthly). As such you can terminate your tenancy on 30-days notice. So no, you are not bound by the terms of your sub-lessors new lease.
You are obligated only by the terms of your own (sub)lease with the primary tenant; his/her lease with the landlord is irrelevant. Check what your lease said; unless it had some sort of automatic renewal clause, upon expiration you became a month-to-month tenant and can terminate with 30 days notice.
