Offer Tenant Who Illegally Sublets Option to Give Up Apartment
If you’re like most owners who discover that an illegal subtenant is living in a rent-regulated apartment, your first reaction may be to contact your attorney and sue in housing court to evict the tenant. But this course of action doesn’t always make sense. Housing court cases based on illegal sublets take time and can cost a lot. And even if you win, the tenant will usually get the chance to avoid eviction by getting rid of the illegal subtenant.
