Is a tenant without a lease protected by the same laws as a tenant with a lease?

Posted by Michele Negron on July 06, 2000 at 14:10:32:

I live in a 4-family house in Queens, NY. We are not rent controlled or stabilized and do not have a written lease. I need to know if a tenant without a lease is protected by the same laws and rights as a tenant with a lease. The landlord is not paying the utilities on the house, making repairs and has discontinued the exterminator. We want to make sure we have as much accurate information as possible so that the landlord won't be able to "get over" on us anymore. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
