: If two people's names are on a lease, and one moves out, is it important to take their name off the lease? (i.e. Can they kick me out if they find out my roommate isn't living here anymore?) If so, a) how do we go about taking my roommate's name off the lease, and b) are there any dangers or potential problems to look out for in the process? Thanks for any advice.

: We live in Queens in a rent stabalized apartment. We are about to renew our lease.

This has recently been answered. And there is a DHCR fact sheet covering it too. Search this board. Read the NY Tenants and DHCR sections on TN Home.

Short answer: you have an absolute right to renew your lease in your name alone at the normal renewal rates, not the vacancy rates.
