He can stay in the apartment as long as your husband maintains his residence in the apartment. If you spend less than half a year in the NYC apartment and the landlord becomes aware of this you may be jepordizing your lease.
With regards to taking over the brother in-law is out of luck. Have you consider subleasing? REMEMBER once the landlord realizes you are not in the apartment as a primary residense he can terminate your asking for a sublease might raise his interest...


: I have a lease that expires July 31st in NYC. The building was sold last year to a new owner during my last lease and I had signed a renewal lease with the old owner and also then resigned the lease with the new owner(rent stablized). (I also think there may be serious code viloations on the apt building - especially wiring and remodeling of the apt.)

: I got married last my husband who has been living with me for the past 3 years in the NYC apt. The old land lord had full knowledge of him living there and that was fine.But he was not on the lease.

: In December, my husband who is not on the current lease got a new job that required him to move to NJ. We took a second residence in NJ. In Dec his brother moved into the NYC apt. I had sent a copy of our marriage license and asked that my husband be added to the lease. They did not add him. Does his brother have a right as a family member to stay in our apt or take over the lease in July? The LL is trying to get him out and trying to blame vandalism on him that I know he did not commit. What can be done to me as I am the holder of the lease? Is the LL required to send me a renewal? I just want my brother in law to have a place to live and me not be hasseled with the whole NYC apt scene.
