: I live in my parents Cooperative apartment. They moved out about 10 years ago. The Cooperative has been taking maintainence checks from me dfor several years and also i have lived in the building for over 20 years - since it was a rental. What sort of tenant rights do i have in terms of seeking and communicating repairs, etc. my parents don't want to be bothered unless it is absolutely necessary? I have been asking the Manging Agent lately for a copy of a contract they approved regarding repairs in the apartment andand thewy have ignored my request for over three weeks.
You have whatever rights the Proprietary Lease formally gives you, and, informally, whatever passes for normal in that coop.
First, find out where you stand. Read that lease: there's an occupancy clause which may define your situation as a sublet, most sublets in coops require written pre-approval from the board of directors.
