It would be easier if the ex put you as co-tenant on the lease. If not, find out what her plans are once the lease expires. It sounds like she's being cool about it and letting you stay there for the time being. You could either wait til the lease expires and see if she doesn't renew and then approach the LL to sign your own new lease on the apartment (the rent will go up substantially) or take the time you have left to save up and move to a new apartment come expiration of current lease.
: My ex-girlfriend moved out Jan.1. The lease is in her name. I moved in with her (upon her request) July of '99. Her vacating the apt. (rent stabilized,16 unit rental building in Brooklyn) was her choice. The landlord doesn't know she's gone (I don't think). I pay her and she pays him. She was supposed to add me to the lease but has not yet done so, I'm now unsure if she will. The landlord knows me and knows I live here. This has been my legal address for 1&1/2 years. The lease expires Jan.'02. What are my rights to the apt.? How can I get the lease? Or at least protect myself?
