you be on very thin ice if you move out

In order for you to keep your apartment or have any roommates including family at least one person(thats you) on the lease must use the apartment as permenant residence. I'm not sure if being away at school makes that an issue for your daughter. Has your daughter been staying with you during time off from school and before? if so she's already accrued some time with you. In order for you daughter to have succession rights she would have to live WITH you in the apartment 2 years but I think she can be away in school during that time. Make sure her mail and her address she lists with agencies is the same as yours.

If the apartment is so important to keep I suggest staying with it and having your daughter move back in for awhile. Then having her get succession of the apartment.

Again much hinges on the ability to call a place a permenent residence while attending school elsewhere...perhaps, someone else on the board has an answer for that.


: I have a rent stabilized apartment which my daughter would like to take over once she graduates from college in 1 year. I would like to move out now and in order to qualify for a mid income housing, reported my daughter living with me. My sister-in-law would like to move into the apartment and I'm wondering if I could get her in as my daughter's roommate (even though she is away to college). If we have to go the assignment route, should we take the risk and let her move in before the 30 day period is over?
