The only person on the lease is the guy who's lived there 22 years, but the other three (including me) aren't on a lease at all. So I guess this makes us "illegal". Should I be insisting that I be added to the lease? He never mentioned it when I moved in almost a year ago and I didn't think anything of it (I'm not a native NY'er by the way so am blindly making my way along the complicated housing issues for this city). Also, I'm wondering if I'm not legal, does this mean I"m not covered for issues on eviction? For example, if the landlord tells me he wants me and the other two to move out that very day, do I have any rights to stay there for a full 30-days or whatever? right now he's in court with the leasee, but could he haul me into court and sue me for living there and not being on the lease? This is getting very worrisome.
: I believe if you are legal roomate the landlord can't deny you the same services or access that leasees get. I believe there was just a court case about this. But I suspect you may not be legal. Can you detail who the roomates are with respect to lease holder. Related? not related? Read the link ANNA posted below it covers roomates.
: : I live in a 4BR apartment with 3 other people. The person whose name is on the lease has been in and out of court for years with the bldg owner over various matters (he's lived there 22 years RS and they want him out). Anyway, I asked one of the doormen yesterday about a package I was expecting from UPS and was told that, per the bldg manager, they were not to accept any packages, dry cleaning, etc. for anyone in the building whose name is not on a lease. Can they do this? I've lived there 10 months and it was never an issue as to whether they'd accept a package or dry cleaning for me. I don't know how they can say theyll accept things for one person, but not another. Any suggestions?
