2 years is you should plan on being evicted for non primary
residence UNLESS you have some damn good reasons why you need to be
away from your NY apartment.

Good reasons include........Dying parents......You failed college and
you need another semester to graduate, you almost got killed and are
in rehab......Hey being in the MILITARY is a great excuse.....

Now do you understand how serious this could be......if you renew your
lease and then let the subletter stay without telling the
Landlord.....if they find out, you and the subletter could be

But if your job is going to last longer then 2'd better
have NOT changed your drivers license, or do you still file New York
State taxes, so you have a NYC checking account....did you vote by
absentee ballot..... is the electric still in your name...and
PHONE............all this will be used against you to prove non
primary residence....

So what is your big gigantic overwhelming excuse not to live in that
apartment.... and deny the landlord a 20% vacancy increase?


: Hve a Rent St. Apartment. I am subletting as I am out of town. I have been away for approx two years. When and under what circumstances can apartment be taken away from me? I know that I can only legally sub-let for a couple of years but moere important can LL take apt away/evict if I am gone so long?
