Owner threatens not to renew lease

A very long story short. My apartment wasn't ready on the date I was supposed to move in. After I moved in, it took nearly four months to get the apartment completed. I have gone to ASLOCA and they advised me that, if I want to puruse the matter, I would be due a rent reduction to be determined by a judge.

The rental company told me to get in direct contact with the owner to talk about the reduction (which I thought was odd). The owner then told me that if I went to a judge that he (the owner) would not allow me to renew my lease when it expires next year.

Can the owner really threaten this? Is it legal?
