In Reply to: Subletting Denied - Rent Stabilized Question NYC HELP! posted by Lara Jefferson on July 19, 2000 at 15:49:10:
They just assume you will be a wuss and leave the apartment. Not bad for a 33 cent stamp......And the scary part is People do leave!
Suggestion: sublet the apartment with most of your furniture there, and of course do not charge them more then the rent you are paying, FORGET about the 10% sublet allowance...untill after the court date and trial.
And absolutely make sure when you get your renewal, you sign it immediately, and MAKE SURE it is postmarked in NEW YORK CITY, and certified return reciept! If you dont get a renewal within the 120-150 days before expiration, on the 120 or 121 or 122 day go to their offices and demand a renewal lease, if you sign one there MAKE COPIES with both signatures on it...do not expect them to mail it....they wont .... You dont want to give them any reason to try and evict you again.
: Rnt Stabilized Apartment in 18 unit building. I have current lease for next 20 months. I am going to grad school for 20 months and want to sublet and will return to the apartment after that time.
: I am asking for permission to sublet my apartment for a period of 20 months – a period during my current lease. I have submitted all necessary information as required in accordance to the Real Property Law Section 226-b and submitted the additional information my landlord requested. I have documented that I plan on returning to NYC and retaining this apartment as my primary residence. In addition, I am leaving my furniture and majority of my belongings in the apartment.
: The landlord and their lawyer have sent me a letter declining the request to sublet because they feel that the reasons for subletting are “not compelling” and “there is no proof or indication of the circumstances that will allegedly occur that will enable you to return to the apartment. Clearly you have not shown that your absence from the apartment will be a temporary one.” I feel that my request for sublet has been withheld unreasonably.
: I would like to pursue this matter and am looking for information or resources that will assist me in overturning their denial as I am only planning on being absent for 20 months and do plan on returning to the apartment. Please contact me as I would like to discuss my next steps.
