In Reply to: Roommate Law (RPL §226-b) Doesn't Cover Co-ops posted by New York Tenant on April 09, 2001 at 07:16:29:
: Anna's message is misleading. Real Property Law (RPL) §226-b(3) specifically excludes co-ops from coverage by the roommate law:
Read it again: you're very very confused.
Anna's message is as clear as a bell: it is impossible for a sublet in a co-op to be ILLEGAL because there's no law against subletting....
RPL 226-b cancels out anti-sublet clauses in leases for most apartments: it makes the anti-sublet clause illegal.
Like she said, subletting might be a violation of the lease, but it ain't no violation of the law! (could still get you evicted...)
Here's the definition of ILLEGAL:
illegal \Il*le"gal\, a. [Pref. il- not + legal: cf. F. ill['e]gal.] Not according to, or authorized
by, law; specif., contrary to, or in violation of, human law; unlawful; illicit; hence,
immoral; as, an illegal act; illegal trade; illegal love. --Bp. Burnet.
