Illegal Subleting -- Rent stabilized apartment

Posted by JESS and Enka on August 01, 1998 at 22:51:01:

Me and my boyfriend have been living in an illegaly subleted apartment for the past two years. After leading us to believe that we will "eventually" get his lease -- on a one month notice he is kicking us out. Do we have any rights? Does anybody know whom we can talk to? The building is rent stabilized, and apparently the "landlord" has just extended his lease this July (for another year). He gave us a verbal notice to be out Sep. 1st. We have no written contracts with him and we paid him by checks (while he kept sending his personal checks to the management). We have been paying 20% more than his actual rent. Help.
