renting in a co-op building. Please help me!

Posted by patrick mannion on August 13, 1998 at 09:23:06:

I live in a building that is 75% owned by a corporation, and 25% owned by
individual co-op owners (or vice versa). The corporation rents out their
apartments by sublease. As a tenant of the corporation, do I have the same
rights as other types of tenants in new york? Do I have the right to
sublease my apartment (I did pay a massive fee to get in)?

Also, to get this place, I had to pay an extra 3 months rent in advance,
so now, I don't have to pay my last three months rent....Now in the lease renewal,
the landlord demands the same three months rent in advance, even though I've
always paid my rent on time....Does he have the right to do this? Does he
have the right to evict me if I refuse to pay the three months in advance?

Please drop me an email if you know the answer! thanks!
