illegal sublet situation - PLEASE HELP ME

Posted by Audrey on April 05, 2000 at 13:59:32:

I have been living in a great apt. in Manhattan now for 14 months. The guy that I rent from has just told me that it is an illegal sublet and he wants me out ASAP because he can't be bothered dealing with it any more. I pay him more than his rent actually is and at the moment I am trying to find out if the apartment is rent controlled or rent stabalized (I know it is one of the two because the rent is so cheap).

I also wanted to know if he terminates his lease can I take over the lease without the rent increasing dramatically - considering I have been living there for so long now - do I have any rights???? If so can anyone help me find out what they are??
