illegal rental, living out security

Posted by Gina on December 01, 2000 at 15:43:53:

I am currently living in an illegal apartment in someone's house (long island, NY). I have resided their for one year and 4 months. I have no lease and I have paid my rent on-time every month. I notified them that I was giving them a month's notice and I'd be living out my security. My reason for leaving is because I am constantly being harrassed and they spy on me and enter my apartment with no consent from me. They are continuing to harrass me, but I don't want to pay them another month's rent because they have my security deposit. Do I have any rights? It was never mentioned that I had to pay my last month's rent. Can I legally live out my security, bearing in mind that the apartment is immaculate other than a few minor holes in the wall from pictures that I hung, but I am going to fill them.
