Illegal Sublet

Posted by chris on January 19, 2001 at 10:19:18:

What rights, if any, do I have?
I am living in a rent stabilized apartment, but I am no the primary tenant, nor am I a legal subtenant. I have lived in the apartment for 13 months and the primary tenant isn't renewing the lease which ends this February.
I notified the landlord of my interest in signing a vacant lease for the apartment and submitted an application at his office.
To my dismay, notices and petitions were sent for non-payment, which were paid.
I have a lawyer who is working on this, but what rights, if any, do I have, and what can the landlord do?
