Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
There is no law that says the landlord must permit you to assume your aunt's lease for that apartment.
When she passes away, he will be free to lease it to someone else on new terms. Unfortunately, that means that
you can be evicted unless you can work out a new lease agreement with him.
I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.

Could you explain a little more?
Is this a rent controlled/stabilized housing?
Thank you for your cooperation.
