Hi Julia
If you are still in search of an apartment I have some advice for you. I think that your situation is not hopeless. You have a good credit score, so you won’t have problem with that. It would be great to hire a real estate professional to help with your question. But if you don’t have money for this kind of service, don’t get upset. You easily can search property by yourself using differ websites. I like Rentberry. They do background check for free and don’t charge application fees, so you can save money on that. You can even offer you price for an apartment, higher or lower than listed on site. And who knows maybe you will be lucky and rent the apartment for 1450$/month. ... more

No, not a right. The tenant can speak with the person from whom they are subletting for a copy if they really want to see it. But again, it's not a right.

Since this falls under the realm of legal advice, I must refrain from answering the question as giving legal advice when a person is not an Attorney is a felony in the State of New York.

But it seems to me, from a common-sense perspective, that a landlord can't just throw your belongings out without some legal permission from a court. There are strict legal requirements in New York when a Landlord and a Tenant have a dispute.

A good Landlord & Tenant Attorney is the best person to ask. I've also heard the clerks at Landlord & Tenant Court are helpful in explaining the legal processes to both Landlords and Tenants.

An Attorney friend recently advised one of my homeowner clients who owns a 3 Family home. I remember the some of the conversation:

1. Landlord must FIRST give a 30 day written notice to vacate hand-delivered to the tenant. The thirty days begins the first day of the NEXT month after delivery.

2. If the tenant does not vacate then the landlord must go to court. For that part of the process, I have no knowledge and I'd recommend consulting with an Attorney who specializes in Landlord & Tenant issues.

I have heard also that the clerks at Landlord & Tenant Court are helpful in explaining the process to a tenant in danger of being evicted.
