Subletter won't leave
by L Russell on Wednesday, August 29, 2001 @19:28
I am on the lease of a duplex apartment in Brooklyn, NY. I had a subletter come in to share the apartment with me over the summer and agreed to extend our "verbal agreement" on a month-by-month basis.
After having problems with her not paying rent on time, and having a friend move in on Oct. 1, I am planning to give a 30-day notice on Sept 1.
She has already indicated that she won't be ready to leave in that time period and based on her personality, it wouldn't surprise me if she refused to leave.
In anticipation of this, I'm wondering...in this situation, do I have a right to make her leave immediately? Since she's a subletter in an apartment I still reside in, are laws usually different? We do not have a formal contract and she is not on the apartment lease so I'd like to switch the locks. If I can't do this, how long does an eviction notice usually take? I don't have the money to fund her staying on if she refuses to pay rent.
