Looking for some coaching -- a little over two years ago, I moved in with Pauline. She is 86 yrs. old & has lived in this apartment for -- I think -- 30+ years.
My portion of the $1070 rent was $760 -- I made the check out to her and she, in turn, sent the rent to the landlord (and still does..the landlord thinks shes "coming back"..she's not. Her lease states that she is allowed to have one person live with her. My being there is no secret -- the doormen know, the landlord knows, the phone/cable/etc..come in my name to our address -- but my name IS NOT on the lease. Pauline recently moved into an old folks home..bless her heart.
I'm positive that the landlord (via the super & doormen) is DYING to get me out...refurbish, double the rent, etc. My question is this: do I have a prayer? I am a good tenant & would love to stay. I am not looking for a "deal" & will pay whatever the landlord can legally hike up the rent to.
Ideally, I would like to approach the landlord & request a lease of my own. On what grounds can they deny me a lease?
Any advice would be appreciated.
