The landlord will have to go to housing court to evict you and the tenant, and you don't have to move until a judge orders you to move.
You probably don't have a right to demand a lease in your own name (as in the case of an illusory tenancy), but you might be able to negotiate with the landlord for a vacancy lease.
: My Question is whether I have any rights under NYC Housing Law to keep the apartment I have been occupying for the last two years.
: I think the landlord has become suspicious recently that I am not in fact the person they receive checks from every month. I give money to the tenant on the lease who then sends it on to the landlord.
: If we are found out do I have any grounds to demand a lease under my name rather than be evicted? Can I be thrown out immediately or are court proceedings required?
: This is a rent stabilized appartment and if I lose it I don't know what I'll do.
: Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
