    Default Re: What Happens When One Tenant Moves Out of a Rent-Stabilized Unit

    The New York City Rent Guidelines Board explains,
    Quote Quoting I am one of two names on the lease - can I renew with just my name?
    As long as your name appears on the lease and you continue to live in the apartment, you have the right to future renewal leases in your stabilized unit.
