You can legally sublet for (it think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong) 2 out of 4 years. This would probably cover you till you get your job issues settled. Than you can either come back or give up the apartment.
: ok tenants and lawyers, what do you think. i have a rent stabilized apt.
: over 60 apts in building. pre war. i want to sublet to a very good friend.
: i pay 800 and with the 20% + vacancy allowance the rent could
: go up to 1000$. i also would have to come back in two years (which i may do)
: - i'm going out of town for a job that may work out or may not. but i don't want
: to lose the apt. i don't want my friend to pay 1000 and i don't want to lose the apt. if i decide to stay out of town longer than two years. i do everything by the book, but
: am thinking of illegally subletting. i know i could get caught and prompty evicted, if caught. but i've been here 8 years, send rent checks monthly, renew leases
: and never once actually deal with management in person. the supers are great and may turn the other way. i'm checking it out. my question: how foolish is this?
: what is the liklihood of landlord charging vacancy? why wouldnt they? if i do it illegally, how do i deal with mailing address, utilities, stuff like that - yes, i'm asking
: for info to support an illegal sublet. how is it done? any advice, warnings, bad experiences are welcome.
