A master/sub tenant question about lease transfer...

Posted by Alison on January 13, 2000 at 14:36:45:

I am living in one room of a rent-stabilized apartment in Manhattan. I am not
on the lease, and I pay my rent to the master tenant of the apartment in cash.
We get along great, and he has mentioned several times that he will be moving
in the fall. He has lived there for many years in this prime location in
Manhattan, so I'm sure his rent is low. I am wondering if there is a way that
I could be listed on his apartment lease so that when he leaves, I can retain the
lease at the low rent?!?

I have read some things on the net about subtenants who have some sort of "relationship"
with the master tenant, where they must provide documentation of such. I do not,
but is there another way that I may still qualify?
