yes...you always have rights....every person with a home has rights, and
even when in the wrong, you have at the very least, 30 days to find a new
home....keep offering to pay your rent, and sit tight....then let the court
system go to work for you...if the landlord wants you out so bad, then let
him/her burden the expense of taking you to court to force you out...even
if the judge says you have to leave, you'll get 30 days notice....but still
look for a place. I don't know the specifics of your situation, and don't
know if you'll win, but I know for sure that he can't kick you out in 2 weeks.
: : Are you in a rent stabilized or rent controlled building?
: : the building is not rent controlled or rent stabilized.
: : : I have lived in my apartment for two years and have not been late on a single payment, nor have we received any complaints about noise, etc. Our lease is up and the roommate that is on teh lease is leaving. We found another rommate and i wnated to put the lease in my name and the landlord is rufsing. He says he wont rent ot us because I have two delinquencies on my credit report. I have a cosigner with superb credit but he wont even consider one. Therefore, i have to be out in two weeks.
: : : --Do I have any rights even though I was on the lease only listed as a rommate (I didn't sign it).
: : : --Does two years of a perfect payment record stand for anything?
: : : --Since he only informed us two weeks before we had to be out, do I have any legal ground to buy another month in the building to find a place. i have offered but he wont accept it. He says hed rather have it empty than have a person with "suspect credit living there.
: : : Any help with these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
