You should contact your local legal aid society office to discuss your situation with a landlord/tenant Attorney; or consult with a qualified Landlord/Tenant Attorney by clicking on the "Find a Lawyer" tab above. As the landlord has identified, they are not responsible for anything related to your separate agreement with the tenant. The problem is that if you move into the apartment and only pay the $1050, if the actual tenant does not pay the remainder of the rent each month; you will find yourself locked out of your apartment and all of your personal belongings will be confiscated. If you want to protect yourself, you need to make friends with the building management and tell them that if the tenant does not pay the extra $152 each month, that you will agree to do so. Then, if she doesn't, you pay the $152 for that month and move your stuff. From there, the building management only has a contract with the tenant, not you, so they will go after her rather than you. These situations are normally where the tenant doesn't have enough money to pay the rent, so they are willing to allow someone to pay a lesser amount with the tenant making up the difference until the lease is up. So you need to become aware if the lease is up in a couple of months. If it is, the tenant will stop paying at that time. Be very careful in these situations, take the steps to protect yourself. If you can't, don't even move your stuff into the apartment in the first place. Best of Luck.
