With no lease in a non-regulated apartment (assuming NYC), you have very little rights. The LL/coop owner/prime tenant/whoeveritis, can tell you to leave with 30 days notice. You might be able to tie it up in housing court a few months, but you will have to leave.

However, they can't summariy throw you out. If you refuse to go, they have to file for an eviction, get a ruling from a judge, and have the marshall remove you.

: I've rented a room in a CO-OP for 4 years, but have no written lease. (I do have rent reciepts and cancelled checks, ample documentation that I've resided there) My question is: Do I have any legal rights to my space? The place isn't in my name and I suspect my roomate is charging me the entire rent/maintanance of the apartment. He also, much of the time appears to be not all there mentally. What legal rights do I have to this space? If any trouble develops who should I contact? Thanks for your help
