I mistakenly wrote that I sublet the apartment to a friend; in fact, I sublet the apartment FROM a friend.

I moved into my rent-stabilized apt. in May under some precarious
: circumstances; I sublet the apt. to a friend who lied to the landlord.
: He found out and threatened to evict me for trespassing.
: In July we worked the situation out and he attached a rider to the lease,
: assigning the remainder of the lease and the security deposit to me.
: The lease expires in May 1997.

: Since July I have paid the rent within a week of the first every month.
: This month, the landlord threw away my check because he didn't
: recognize the envelope. I agreed to send a duplicate check
: (for which I bear the expense of stopping the check, the new check,
: the envelope and the postage);
: now he's calling and demanding to know when I mailed it; why I don't return his calls immediately;
: where I am when I don't answer my phone or my door (I travel a lot)
: and threatening dispossession.
: Whenever he likes, the landlord calls me and interrogates me or leaves nasty threatening messages on my
: voicemail at home and at work.

: I had a leak in my bathroom; when I called to inform him, he told me to
: find the leak, clean up the mess and put a bucket under it, and
: that he'd send the plumber. So far, no plumber.

: Is this harrassment?
