NYC Realestate filter. Best ways to find an apartment sublet this August, and then a rental. Must be on the E/F subway line. Questions about subletting/renting -> Clinton/MidtownEast/LIC-queens neighborhoods follow. [more inside]

NYC Landlord Weirdness. Our building had two landlords, each of whom presided over different apts. 3 Apts (including ours) were managed by Landlord A, 4 by Landlord B. Now landlord B is taking over the entire building. I have some questions. [more inside]

How do I protect myself from a situation like the one I read about (inside), where a sex-offender was hired as a super and was allegedly being inappropriate?
Can I/should I ask for background checks from anyone who has keys/access to my apartment, since it seems like the landlord is not required to do so (in NYC)? [more inside]

I am looking to find out overall statistics for property rentals in NY for 2009-2010. I am trying to write a letter to prevent a rent hike and I want to fill it with some statistics to help better illustrate my point. Thanks in advance.

We signed a lease (2 copies) on a new apartment in NYC, at our broker's office. The 2 copies were sent to the management company. As promised, the management company sent one of the copies back to us about a week later. It's got our original signatures, but the landlord didn't sign it! The line for the landlord's signature is empty. Doesn't this mean that we're bound to the terms of the contract, but the landlord is not? It seems very wrong. Is it normal? Should we demand a copy of the lease with the signatures of both parties on it?
