Thats what I thought. I am working overseas and as such do not pay NYState taxes 'cause I don't have to . .I do have an account and will vote by absentee . . All my family is in NY, yada yada yada . . .Is work a good enuf reason? By the by the tax issue nearly got me a few years ago as my LL (who were subletting the apt to me were out of state for over two years) - This LL is pretty on top of things . . .is vacancy really 20%, I thought it was between 10-15% . . What about a compromise, woner if my LL would let nme sigh a new lease with the 20% increase so that I can keep the apt. I expect to be back in 1 year (or so. Wonder if he'll do that . .he gets his increase Iget to keep apt . . 20% doesn't seem so bad . .not in this mkt and for what I am paying now it is not a REAL lot

: 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
: evicted......

: 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?
