my husband and I have a situation, we currently live in a nycha apartment with my stepdad, he rented out the room to use for 800 a month, we found out it was illegal for him to do that and we stop paying. He got upset and sent up a 30 day quit letter to kick us out. Today is the last day of the 30 days, how can we go about suing him and getting him evicted for illegally rent out the apartment? He is a married man and has a wife and house in new Jersey that he goes to for weeks at a time. We think it's unfair for us to be homeless while someone gets away with doing illegal activities. Please help. Thanks

There is not a nonsmoking clause in lease. We didn't know
There is not a nonsmoking clause in lease. We didn't know she smoked. Fire occurred on outside deck causing 28,000.00 in damage because of a discarded cigarette. We tried to add addendum to lease prohibiting smoking on premises jncluding deck. She refused to sign. Receiving phone calls from other unit owners as why we "allow" her to smoke on the deck. Trying to evict as we re afraid of another fire. Felt is was a reasonable addition to lease. Have contacted attorney. This is in NJ

I have a situation involving NYCHA.In Sept 2011 I appliedfor permanent permission to stay in a NYCHA apt with my mother who is the current Tenant ofRecord. Isubmitted the form and in Nov 2011 I was given a Lease Addendum instead of a new lease with ournames on it. I ran into a situation in which I owed back rent, went to housing court and was told thatthelease addendum WAS NOT A lease. I was NEVER offered a lease and continue NOT to be on a lease at this time. I've only been given lease addendums.
