I used to live in Billburg during the 80's and late 90's... and after reading your post and reading these replies... I would have to say "You are very stupid for paying these people that kind of money". Take the money and run.
1) A two family house with a store front is considered a private house (no rent stablization/rent control)
2) The landlord is generous for offering a pay out... a 30 day notice is all he/she need to start eviction proceedings (no lease AND receipts)
3) Able to pay $3000 a month plus utilities??? By a fcukin' house and take care of your family (while the area has had an increase in prices you should be able to find a house near the L subway line)
I wish I could make that kind of claim. I live in Ridgewood, Queens and the travel to manhattan is only 45 mins. 30 mins if I rush.
You could already own your own home and charge some one else rent.
Do your family a favor BUY A HOUSE OF YOUR OWN!
: OK now here's the situation, sorry it can't be brief. I live in Williamsburg Brooklyn, now known for the rise in rent, in a 2 apartment buiding with a Chinese restarunt below and another building in the back with 6 small apartments . I am 24 yrs. old and I live with my mother and my 2 brothers and sister; 2 months ago the landlord offered my mother $3,000 to move out, she declined.
: Now his son tells my mother verbally that she has till the end of january to move out, because he has a family that he wants to put in here. Ok, my mother does not care anymore because she wants to leave but I do not. I am able to afford the apartment on my own now, but the landlord does not know this, yet.
: Here's the kicker, now I find out that she does not have a lease and she has never had a lease since she moved in (and she has been paying rent in cash without reciepts(dumb I know, which I expressed to her in a very rude manner, of course)); keep in mind that my mother took over the apartment from my grandmother(my grandmother also did not have a lease); combined with my mom and my grandmother have been living in this apartment for 20 years, I was here for 14 years because I lived with my grandmother as well.
: My goal is to get this apartment for myself, because I work in they city and I have lived here all my life, now that I can afford it I wish to take over.
: Now the problem is how to go about this situation.
: Thank you for any help that can be provided. Jennifer.
