A friend of mine legally sub-let her apartment of 15 yrs(2bdr,rent stabilized) September 1,1998 - April 1,1999, returned for 4 months
and shared the apartment with her subletters.
She will shortly be leaving NYC again for up to nine months with return visits of two or more months.
She plans to return definitively next summer.
When she returned in this past spring she never changed the status of her sublets to roommates knowing that they were going to
continue to stay until her permanent return.
Her landlord has just contacted her with threat of eviction on grounds of non residence.
What is the time limit on sub-lets? Can the landlord refuse to grant this?
What measures should she take to show that she will (and has) been returning with some frequency.
What measures should she take to show that she will be returning definitively.
She has always been forthright with her where-abouts with her landlord and it was never an issue.
