: I just moved in this month to a friend's rent stabilized apartment. He's charging me $180 above the regular rent, and I was unaware of this at the time.
: He did not give me a lease, and the landlord now wants his apartment back, as he claims that my friend no longer lives there.
: I know tha my friend has kept the phone, and all bills in his name so that he could prove residency if necessary.
: Can the landlord really push someone out?
: I would like to negotiate a new lease with the landlord, though I have not had any contact with him yet.
: If I contact the landlord now, I feel that I am stepping on my friends toes.
: If I keep quiet, I am not taking care of myself and may be on the street.
: I would appreciate any advise.
: Thank you.
Some friend you have. Number 1 he is in trouble for charging you more than 10% above the rent, Remember if the landlord agrrees to accept you he will probably charge you the 20% vacancy rate. Good Luck
