The landlord does not have to add you to the lease and you do not have succession rights since you only moved in last february....however, he can give you a vacancy lease if he choses to or you can get your sister to sublease to you. Since you have been living there it would be difficult (aka costly) for the landlord to fight the sublease. But he could deny this too...


: Hi,

: I have a question, my sister and her boyfriend are both on the lease in the apartment they share. I had moved in at about February (this is a NYC rent-stabilized apt) as a roommate. Anyway, her lease is up in March, and her boyfriend wants to move out and she wants to put me on the lease. I have more than enough salary to cover it and I have a good credit history but I know the landlord does not like me since I had moved in as a roommate (which I am legally entitled to do according to some of the posts I have read here) and for some reason he had a problem with that. (I had actually paid the rent check once and he had a HUGE problem with that since it was in my name, which I understand, but the reaction I got was absolutely miserable.) Other than that, he has been fine.

: Can he deny me being her roommate, she is still going to live there, and so am I, but is there any way he could deny me this if her boyfriend moves out and I want to replace him?

: Thanks!
: Kimmy
