I need help! I have been living with my roommate for 7 years and she has
decided to relocate by the end of the month. She is suddenly in search of
her self and is leaving. She has had "control" issues and has never agreed to
put me on the lease. My grandmother recently passed away, and I have inherited
a fourteen year old cousin as a kinship foster son. I need to keep the apartment
as part of the adoption procedures that I will commence in April. The "slumlord"
does not want me to succeed the lease, nor is he willing to let me live out the lease
which is up 10/31/97. Are there any laws that protect me as a roommate, though not
on the lease? I have no where else to go and am not in a financial position to
vacate the premises by the end of this month. Are there any laws that protect me
as a foster parent to my 14 year old cousin? Also, I have been considered by her
whose name is also on the lease as part of the "family". Wouldn't this make me a
"non-traditional" family member entitled to succeed the lease? I am desperate, please
help me. I will be back tomorrow to check the message system. THIS MATTER
