If you're already paying 2/3 of the rent, you might want to consider paying all the rent if he'll agree to remain. It might not be "fair" but it's still cheaper than finding a new apartment.

: 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
