: What are the legal rights of the "occupant" in an apartment lease versus the person who actually SIGNS the lease?

: Can the "occupant" be forced to leave the apartment if the person who signed the leases wishes he/she do so?


What state do you live in? did you look for your states' laws on TenantNet Home?

Basically, here in NY: the tenant can only be asked to leave at the end of the written lease, the occupant (or anyone else with an oral lease) needs only 30-days notice. With all oral leases and some written leases, no reason is needed. With certain types of leases, only very specific reasons are needed.
