Roomie's rights?

Posted by Douglas Friend on March 02, 2001 at 14:28:03:

I am a tenant in an apartment in Brooklyn, NY with two other people, one of whom has the lease in his name. Due to personal problems - former friends who no longer get along - he has told me he wants me out of the apartment in 30 days. However, I have never paid rent or utility bills late, while he has as well as bounced a few checks to the landlord - I have actually paid his bills and rent on occasion because he doesn't have a job while I do. I have written to the landlord and he has agreed to put my name on the next lease (the current lease runs out in three months). Does my roomate have any authority to remove me from the apartment without valid complaint or does only the landlord have that right? I would appreciate any help or advice you may be able to provide.

Thank you.
