A “Rental Questionnaire” or a “Statement of Tenancy” may be used to disguise a tenant estoppel certificate. It’s always a good idea to be cautious when you receive a document like this, no matter what it’s called.
You may be asked to sign a tenant estoppel certificate if your landlord is selling your apartment building. This is to ensure that the financial details of the income property, aka your home, are disclosed to the potential buyer.
Under the heading “Disclosure of Tenant Rights Before and After Rental Unit Sales,” When a building is being sold, Section 37.9(k)(1)(E) states that tenants should receive: Tenant shall execute and return a tenant estoppel certificate delivered to Tenant by Landlord or Landlord’s agent within three days of receipt. Failure to comply with this requirement will be construed as Tenant’s acknowledgment that the tenant estoppel certificate is true and correct, and that a lender or purchaser may rely on it.
Do you see the snag here? If your lease contains a clause like this, and you don’t respond within three days, whatever the landlord writes in the certificate is considered correct. While it may appear to be in good condition on the surface, there may be some hidden pitfalls that will harm you as a tenant in the future.
