Sorry about the vagueness.

By "the city" I mean New York City (is there any other?)
My friends lease does not expire till March 2001 (he signed a two year lease in March 1999).
The leaseholder (my friend) charges me the rent as stated on the lease.
I am sure the apartment is rent stabilized (not rent controlled).

I am getting the feeling that he cannot require me to move out in two weeks. 30 days, yes but two weeks, no. They wanted to kick both of us out that day or take us to court immediately.

: I subletted my apartment from a friend last July who went to house sit for a year in the city. The rent has been paid on time and I have been a model (sub)tenant. One day the landloard called to ask the tenant why the rent checks were certified checks. He told him that he was going to be out of the apartment till May of this year. The landlord said that was fine. May came around and my friend had still not moved in but was planning to in the next few months. Today (May 17th) we got an angry call from the landlord saying that we both had to move out of the apartment immediately or he was going to sue. We have since calmed him down and he has agreed to give me till the end of the month and starting June my friend must be living here.

: Any hope of my staying?
