In Reply to: Succession Rights in NYC - do I qualify if my roommate is my best friend posted by julie on April 22, 1999 at 14:11:58:
For nonrelated roommates to have succession right you basically have to show domestic partner(aka lover) relationship. Shared bank accounts, named on each other wills, people who will testify that your relationship was real. Some gay couples who have been together for over 20 years sometimes have trouble showing these things. Afterall, many never wanted to rock the boat so to speak and deal with banks, insurance companies, and lawyers with regards to their relationship.
: I have lived w my current roommate for 2 years. I'm not on the lease and she wants to move out. The landlord wants to kick me out, rennovate and then charge over $2000 so the apt is not rent stabalized anymore. Do I qualify for succession rights? We do have a financial and emotional relationship, not of a sexual nature, but that isn't required from the information I've read on succession rights. Anyone who knows how the courts would view this situation, please respond. Much thanks! Julie 212-235-4673
