: The New York Police Department Patrol Guide, Procedure No. 117-11, Unlawful Evictions, is intended for the NYPD to help to restore people who have been illegally evicted. It is not authority for the NYPD to evict people.
Okay, but it does suggest that the cops won't intervene if she dispossed the subtenant herself, and the subtenant can't demonstrate to the cops that she's been there 30 days or more. At that point the subtenant would have to go to housing court. With no written proof, what chance would she (the subtenant) stand there?
: The woman who started this long thread created her own problems. Roommate situations can always have difficulties. She should have moved into the new apartment and got the feel of things. If things seemed to going fine (not that they can't change in the future), she could have tried to legally sublet her old apartment. Maybe she would have lost her share of a month's rent at her old place, but look at the situation that she, her caught-in-the-middle roommate, and her illegal subtenant are in now.
Yeah, playing Russian Roulette with housing in NYC in this market is stupid.
