Board power trip

Posted by John on November 08, 1999 at 15:41:59:

I own a small studio coop in Yonkers, NY which I have been subletting since
1995. My last tenant moved out on Nov 1. On Oct 20 I submitted a new sublet
application, the prospective tenant application and a sublet fee to the
management office. The board reluctantly approved my application to sublet
but refuses to interview the prospective tenant until Nov 17. The problem is that
the tenant MUST vacate his current residence by Nov 12. So the tenant, a
close friend of mine, has no place to live until his interview. The board is
fully aware of the situation and yet refuses to show compassion.

Can I legally permit the prospective tenant, my friend, to stay in the
apartment until the Board has rendered its verdict? Even if the board rejects him
I would like him to be able to stay in the apartment at least until he finds
another place to live. I feel responsible since I led him to believe he would
be in the apt by Nov 1. He, of course, would not be allowed to move any furniture
into the place and I would not charge him any rent.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
