This is the situation. I have been legally subleasing my apartment for 2 years. The tenants from whom I am subleasing are living in another state. I pay the tenants the base rent plus 5% sublease fee and they in turn pay this amount to the landlord. The landlord has informed them that she would permit only a 2-year sublease, which expires this month. The tenants' main lease does not expire until November. However, they would like for me to remain in the apartment until November, at which point they are hopeful that the landlord will permit me to "take over" the lease. The question is, now that the sublease is technically over, what should we do? Should the tenants continue to pay the sublease amount as usual? Should they go back to paying their usual rent amount under the assumption that they can allow anyone they want (me) to "stay" in their apartment while they are gone? Can the landlord evict me? HELP!!
