lease renewal nightmare!

Posted by Jeff goodin on August 14, 1998 at 12:10:17:

I have lived in my apartment for two years and have not been late on a single payment, nor have we received any complaints about noise, etc. Our lease is up and the roommate that is on teh lease is leaving. We found another rommate and i wnated to put the lease in my name and the landlord is rufsing. He says he wont rent ot us because I have two delinquencies on my credit report. I have a cosigner with superb credit but he wont even consider one. Therefore, i have to be out in two weeks.
--Do I have any rights even though I was on the lease only listed as a rommate (I didn't sign it).
--Does two years of a perfect payment record stand for anything?
--Since he only informed us two weeks before we had to be out, do I have any legal ground to buy another month in the building to find a place. i have offered but he wont accept it. He says hed rather have it empty than have a person with "suspect credit living there.
Any help with these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
