illegal sublet

Posted by Ron on April 06, 2001 at 17:43:46:

I am currently in an illegal sublet for the past 9 months in NYC. The building is a rent stabilized Co-op with atleast 100 units. I just found out that the owner of the building is trying to evict my landlord as he illegally sublet the apartment. As a result, the landlord has asked me to leave.
1. Do I have any rights as I won't be able to leave right away or can I just get kicked out?
2. If I do stay past the end of the month, should I send my landlord the full months rent as I will not be able to get it back in the event I leave in the middle of next month.
3. The landlord is charging me at least 40% more than he is paying. Therefore, the owner may really be able to evict him. How can I go about trying to take over the lease at the new rate.
4. Do you know of any good attorneys regarding problems of this sought?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
