: thanks for your advice...
: isn't it illegal to back date a legal document like a lease?
: also, has anyone heard of someone owning a building and having their SON as the broker? that has to be illegal.
It might not be illegal to use a son as a broker, but I think that if you found the apartment yourself--and you are required to pay a realtor fee anyway--it is not legal. Common but illegal.
It is a very bad idea to move into an apartment without a lease. Until you have the lease you have no protection from eviction, unless it is rent stabilized--in which case the LL is violating a slew of laws.
