I would follow bluedog's advice and send each a notice that you wish to extend the lease but until such time as the ownership is settled you will deposit your rent monthly into an escrow account.

NVtoNY,
Did both send you a notice of lease renewal? Was the rent increase the same for both?

If so, one of them is guilty of fraud, probably mail fraud.

that actually holds the deed.
How did you find out who holds the deed?

That's a great way to get evicted and blackballed

Only evicted and blackballed? I would presume you'd have said imprisoned and perhaps executed.

It's pretty simple really, you have a lease signed with a property owner. If you decide in your infinite wisdom to instead pay some random escrow bank account, then you are in violation of your lease agreement and subject to eviction. Once evicted, your name is in the system and no landlord in NYC with an apartment of any value is ever going to rent to you again

Not so simple...the lease is set to expire, aka no lease.

Two entities have offered him the right to renew and he must choose which, and thus to whom to send the money.
If he chooses wrong he might not even renew his lease. He should not be put in this position, only a judge should make this determination, and hence the escrow way to go is the best, with notices to both parties.

Buildings are sold all the time and if one sends checks to the former owner, crooked owner that is, he may be up the proverbial fecal creek when the actual owner comes a'callin'.

A good rule of thumb for living: never send a check to a person who may be a crook.
