succession rights...situation

Posted by gi0rgi0 on August 24, 2001 at 20:58:33:

I'm sharing a rent-controlled apt. I moved in 4 mths ago and have a great relationship with the only tenant. His career has taken a nose dive and even though I'm paying 2/3 rent, he talks about having to move out after over 20 yrs b/c of no $$. He reminds me that if he has to move out, I can "have" the apartment. In case he's serious, my curiosities are:

What are my options as a non-traditional family member if he can't afford rent anymore?
Can he add my name to the lease in an r.c. apt?
I've been there under 2 yrs, what grounds can I debate for tenancy?
Is a real estate atty a good idea?

thanks much
