unwanted "subletter"

Posted by m. on August 18, 1999 at 14:48:14:

i have the lease on a rent-stabilized apartment.
i arranged to have a friend move into my room (the other room is occupied by a non-lease-holder who is
long-term, no-hassle roommate)while i moved into another (nicer) apartment. that apartment fell through, and i want to move back into the apartment i hold the lease on.
she has occupied the room for one week-- the day she moved in, august 1st, i told her i needed to move back in and asked that she move out by september 1st.
she is resisting me verbally-- not threatening legal action, but i am afraid she will simply try to stay in the apartmentand refuse to leave. \
is asking her to leave within my rights as a leaseholder-- and does she have any rights?
is she a squatter? what does that mean legally? i think i'm being generous, considering the fact that she never gave me a deposit and we have nothing on paper.

i am trying to be informed in case she tries anything...
