Re: Roommate Law!?!?: Re: NOT "Roommate Law": RPL Sec. 226-b. Right to sublease or assign.

In Reply to: Roommate Law (RPL 226-b) Doesn't Cover Co-ops posted by New York Tenant on April 09, 2001 at 07:16:29:

: Anna's message is misleading. Real Property Law (RPL) 226-b(3) specifically excludes co-ops from coverage by the roommate law:

Read it again: you're very very confused.

Anna's message is as clear as a bell: it is impossible for a sublet in a co-op to be ILLEGAL because there's no law against subletting....

RPL 226-b cancels out anti-sublet clauses in leases for most apartments: it makes the anti-sublet clause illegal.

Like she said, subletting might be a violation of the lease, but it ain't no violation of the law! (could still get you evicted...)

Here's the definition of ILLEGAL:

illegal \Il*le"gal\, a. [Pref. il- not + legal: cf. F. ill['e]gal.] Not according to, or authorized
by, law; specif., contrary to, or in violation of, human law; unlawful; illicit; hence,
immoral; as, an illegal act; illegal trade; illegal love. --Bp. Burnet.

ps: the Roommate Law is RPL 235-f.


: goto: 226-b
