moving out when there's no lease

Posted by Danielle on December 17, 2001 at 23:14:15:

I'm currently residing in Harrison, New York-I live in a two family house that's owned by the landlord/super. My apartment is occupied by myself and two other individuals. We signed no lease agreement when moving in--we paid the landlord the first months rent as well as a security deposit equalling one month's rent. I am looking to move out on the first of the year, but the two remaining tenants plan to remain for a month beyond that. Because we haven no lease agreement or any other type of written agreement, I don't know what my rights and/or obligations are, if any. Is there a certain time limit required for me to give the landlord notice? Is she required to return my third of the security deposit to me at the time I vacate? I'm concerned because the two remaining tenants have expressed that they intend to have the landlord use my third of the security deposit to pay what would have been my "portion" of the rent after I have vacated.
