: I live in a three apt brownstone in Greenpoint. My roomate had a lease a couple of years ago but we never had a renewal. The landlord told me today that relatives are coming from Poland "sometime early next year" and we will have to move. But the date is not set. What are our rights in this situation? Can we do anything? He said the other tennat of course stays because they just moved in and are paying "lots of money", actually just one hundred more than us.
: Help....I don't want to move.
: Is it time for a lawyer?

Since you don't have a lease I think you might have to move out. If I were you, I wouldn't worry until he gives you a firm date to move out. Your landlord can only remove you from the apt. by court order, which should take a long of time and some $ on his part. This can buy you some time to find a new place. In the mean time, try to get a lease and tell him you will pay the extra $100 that the other tenants are paying.
