In the case of a residential class B hotel in Manhattan, what if the lease was originally signed by 2 people, one tenant moved out, a roommate moved in. The original intent was that the roommate was temporary. LL refused a new lease and although LL accepts both the original tenant's and roommate's rent checks, apt is not roommate's primary residence and only stays in apt 2 nights per week. When letters and official notices, etc. come from LL, they are addressed to the one remaining original tenant. Does the original tenant have the right to evict roommate? The original tenant proposed that the roommate could stay in the apt. 2 nights per week for $100 per month, but roommate refuses. Is the roommate considered a permanent tenant after 6 months? Does anyone know the latest law on this?
