: Have your grandmother add your name to the lease as soon as possible. Keep her name also because there will be a confict of interest if she does not. As a primary tenant she would be able to come and go as she please. With your name added you can pay the rent and ask for services. Both of you can aways do the same for other family members.

Not so simple -- it depends if she's in NYC and if rent stab/ctrl. You get into issues of subletting, assignment, primary residency and family succession (which is now more restrictive). Better to be educated. In general there is no "right" to assignment of a lease. Family succession depends on the relationship, how long the successor has co-lived with the leaving tenant and rent reg status. Subletting is limited -- see the Met Council edition from March 1996.
