eviction question for SRO Brooklyn

Posted by Eduardo on December 09, 2001 at 18:05:24:

I just found out that my studio is really a SRO which explains why I never had a lease and don't need one. And why the landlord has only asked for rent stabilized increases these past two years. In court, they called me a statutary-tenant (tenant-by-law compared to tenant-by-lease or tenant-by-month). I sorta understand what this means by reading about the other statutary-tenants: rent control.

Here's the question, plain and simple: if the landlord gets a judgment in this non-payment lawsuit and I pay the judgment on time, do I get to keep the studio like a regular rent stabilized person or what?

Another way to put that: would a plain month-to-month tenant (not stabilized) get to keep the apartment? would a rent control (no lease) get to get the apartment? or do just people with leases keep their apartments?
