Not on the Lease, Want to be

Posted by Shannon on January 17, 2000 at 10:35:00:

A few months ago I moved in with an acquantance in Brooklyn. He has lived at
this residence for a few years, rent stabilized. As tenants move out of the
building the landlord corp. is selling off the units (ultimately they want to
convert all rentals into condos). My roomate doesn't want to 'rock the boat'
since they haven't done anything to pressure him out. He thinks that the
landlord doesn't want more than one person on the lease (it's a 3 bedroom) -- I
don't know why this would be a problem. At any rate, I'm worried that...

1. when I move out I will have a legitimate gap in my residence history which
might hurt me when trying to move to another place (no landlord reference).
2. if my roomate moves out I could be out on the street or looking at a 30%
increased in rent (they would probably choose, however, to sell the unit).

Anyone have any suggestion? Private responses are fine too. Thanks,
