What constitutes a good faith effort on part of the landlord to fill a broken lease?
Laiosa West Housing
43:43
This accuracy of this advice very much depends on the neighborhood you are talking about. The data shows that the "outer boroughs" are not occupied by affluent people with the ability to move. There are no vacancies and the rents have not gone down. landlords DO NOT have a hard time renting any vacant apartments (northwest Bronx).

Hi Sam, have you noticed any significant differences in negotiating with large corporate/institutional landlords vs. small landlords?
Debora Aquino
45:24
What if there is a guarantor included in the lease? Does the guarantor have to be part of the negotiations?
Zoë Beery (she/her)
45:28
Hi Sam - for tenants who can’t afford an attorney, any suggestions for a template for a lease termination and release agreement? or at least what to include?
Rosalie Grossman
45:58
How can tenant tell from rent history if it should be stabilized?
Lisa Matossian
46:17
If landlord lowers rent during the lease term in a rent-stabilized apt, how would this be documented?
Joshua Stephenson
47:11
yes
Hoda Mitwally

Does any of this apply to Westchester or is it mostly just the boroughs?
Ted Metz
59:39
What happens when the nonpaying roommate refuses to leave?
A Gago
01:01:02
Housing Court - Digital Future: will pro se Tenants / Answer electronically mandatory and what if English; and what if tenant has no access to answer remotely: phone, computer
Sayera M
01:01:23
the law you described where if a Landlord unreasonably refuses to consent to a sublet tenant can go ahead. Does that apply only to rent stabilized tenants or both market rate and rent Stabilized tenants
Laiosa West Housing
01:02:19
Does immigration status have any influence on tenant/roommate rights????t
Zoë Beery (she/her)
01:02:38
this is the directive https://www.nycourts.gov/whatsnew/pdf/2020_11_17_12_48_01OCRd.pdf
A Gago
01:04:12
does sublet laws apply to Rent Control units? with the same surcharge?
Amanda Bengard
01:05:23
In regards to the roommate law. What rights does the roommate have if they are paying monthly rent however the tenant of record is not and the tenant is facing eviction?
Lorraine Correa
01:06:13
I have clients that are undocumented whose landlord refuses to provide them with a lease
Lisa Matossian
01:06:54
Speak with the NYC Commission on Human Rights
Jessica Hurd
01:10:24

A Gago
01:13:32
Surrender agreement can tenant get a copy and write on this document who they made a walk thru of apartment with ( owners super/agent)?
Laiosa West Housing
01:13:43
It is also a good idea to have another person witness the condition of the apartment as you leave, and surrender possession.
Lisa Matossian
01:24:40
How would you assert a partial constructive eviction defense?
Joshua Stephenson
01:27:22
I read an article that stated that "72A Realty Assoc. v Lucas which held that “It is well settled thatthe four year statute of limitations applicable to rent overcharge claims is inapplicable to claimsregarding the status of an apartment. Examination of an apartment’s regulatory status, as opposed towhether or not a rent overcharge has actually occurred, is not limited to four years of inquiry.”"
Laiosa West Housing
01:27:39
Who decides what the "Market Rent" is for an apartment? Is it the court, is it the landlord, is it the tenant, is it the Real Estate listings? Can tenants challenge this amount?
Laiosa West Housing
01:38:14
Can a NYCHA tenant/Section 8 tenant sublet, rent rooms, otherwise have a paying roommate as long as the income appears on their budget???
