    Exclamation When Can You Evict a Subtenant

    My question involves an eviction in the state of: NY
    I am renting a 3 bedroom house from my landlord. Me and my significant other are on the lease. About 1 or 2 months ago we offered a room to her friend and his gf because they were out on the street. We wrote up a lease for the 2 additional tennants stating that theyd pay 1/2 rent and utilities etc etc therefore subletting. I was just recently informed that subletting is illegal in the state of NY. Also her friend threatened her about 4 days ago because his dog got off his runner and was attacking our dog. When she went to strike the dog he threatened HER. Is this grounds to evict since he created a hostile environment? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Theres alot more bull going on and were tired of being walked on. The sooner we can legally get them out the better.

    Who told you that subletting is illegal in New York? The village idiot?

    So your girlfriend had one incident with the roommate where she thought it would be a good idea to break up a dog fight by hitting one of the dogs, and the roommate threatened her if she carried out that plan. With due respect to your complaints, it's not a good idea to hit a dog that is acting aggressively. The roommate may have saved her from inspiring the dog to turn on her.

    Are you pulling the notion of a "hostile environment" out of employment law? A single uncomfortable incident of that nature is not going to be a "hostile environment" even in a work setting, and that concept does not apply to tenancies.
