Customer Question

My tenant in a coop rented a room illegally to a potential squatter. I asked her to refund the money and get him out. He would not accept the money and want to stay. I think it has only been a couple of days. What should I do?

Customer: NY State. Not a purchase. Coop subtenant renting a room to a potential squatter.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: My tenant called the police, the police would not intervene, and told her the matter should be through legal eviction
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

Is the original tenant still living there? Is there anyone else listed on the lease or staying in the property?
