Sucession Rights? - Mitchell-Lama Apartment

Posted by Jane on July 10, 2001 at 10:59:22:

My parents live by themselves in a Mitchell-Lama building in Manhattan. Sadly, their health in deteriorating and in a few years I fear they might have to be moved into an old age home. Is there anything I can do to keep the apartment in the family?

I called the managing agent of the building, and he told me that I have no rights of succession since I do not live with them and I am not on the lease. I raised the point that I am considering moving in to help them out, but he said that once they became to ill to reside there, I too would have to move.

Is there anything I can do? I am considering obtaining legal council, but I don't want to spend money on what I fear may be a worthless cause.

Thank you for any advise.
