Illegal Sublets are tricky. See Real Property Law section 226(b) as well
as the Met Council article (I think from March or May 96) on the web site
regarding sublets. They can't get you out without a court order and (I think)
the papers must refer to you by name or to "John Doe". In some cases, if the prime
tenant has disappeared, you can negotiate with management to take over
the lease (albeit at a substantial increase).

: Boy do I have a problem. I moved into my apartment in March '98, signing a sublease agreement
: with a long-time "friend". On 11/13 I received in the mail, under my name and the name of the
: leaseholder "friend," a Notice to Cure. The landlord -- the infamous Parman Corporation -- claims
: that my "friend" is in violation of his lease by having illegally sublet his pad. The Notice
: said that the violation must be "cured" by 11/21 or the Landlord will attempt to break the
: lease. Well, it turns out -- for reasons better left to a psychotherapist (or the cops) --
: that my "friend" never turned over our sublease contract to Parman!!

: And last Wednesday, 11/25, I received via mail a Notice to Terminate. Parman wants my studio
: apartment vacated by 12/4!

: I have no place to go -- what can I do? Do I have any rights?

: Regards,
