Well thats why you hire a find out the "or else "!!

The landlord is probably trying to evict the tenant on non primary residence
grounds....he does not live there.... you do....

Are you paying more then the legal rent of the apartment???
Then you could claim an illusory tenancy and sue the tenant for back rent
overcharges....then if a judge finds that you were overcharged from the tenant who
is on the lease the landlord usually will be forced to give you a rent stabilized

and $3500 is way too much he is entitled to a vacancy increase somewhere
around 20 to 25 $1600 to $1750 would be reasonable and legal......if he
got you out,, then he would be entitled to the increase plus any rennovation
costs then once over $2000..he could get it deregulated and charge $3500 if
anyone would pay it.....but its not that easy......

Now do you see why BOTH OF YOU should not go to work next week, ask for an
advance of your vaction and sick days and give it to a lawyer...

Thats if you want to stay in the could always leave


: : I am your Landlord no dice on your becoming my tenant... and I agree this is a WONDERFUL site

: This is the reason why I hate landlords. They own these fucked up buildings and expect to profit from the working poor. I hope all your tenants form a tenants association and force you to fix the building.
