  • Is it classified as kidnapping pr something else?

    Cindy’s Answer

    This is definitely NOT kidnapping. You have not alleged that this 17 year old is being taken places against her will, being restrained in any way, or being forced to go along. Absent that, then this that would be considered "something else." Perhaps a date, as suggested above.

  • Roommate moved out from month to month, who is responsible for his rent/finding new tenant?

    Cindy’s Answer

    I would agree with the above posted answer. Given that you are a month to month tenant and don't have a current lease, your roommate is permitted to give notice and move as he is not under the obligation of a lease. That said, it is now your responsibility to find a roommate if you so choose.

  • What kind of legal rights does my son have in this situation and can he have the landlord arrested?

    Cindy’s Answer

    Landlords cannot resort to self help measures to evict tenants. It is absolutely wrong of him to turn off utilities as that is considered a constructive eviction (especially given the weather), and he most certainly cannot enter onto the property to remove any of your son's personal belongings. This landlord is definitely not acting in accord with the RPAPL. You may want to consider obtaining an attorney.

  • Can a landlord evict me and my 2 children if my husband left?

    Cindy’s Answer

    If you are not able to pay the rent then the landlord can certainly seek to evict you.
