Recently they sent the new lease for 2017 and my mom told them I moved out and I m not signing the lease, they told her in

I m 19 years old and I live in a NYCHA apartment (New York City Housing Authority) I moved out of my mothers apartment last janaury but I was still on her lease so I payed my share of rent. Recently they sent the new lease for 2017 and my mom told them I moved out and I m not signing the lease, they told her in order for me to be remove from the lease they need to know where I m living now. Is that any of their buisnnes where I live now and can they still charge me for rent?

it may be that she doesn't qualify for the lease without you and will probably be denied the renewal
I don't see why they would need to know where you are currently living unless there is perhaps an overlapping of the leases that are both under the housing authority
if you don't sign the lease you are not liable, but again, your mother may not be eligible for the new lease alone
Who:
1) its none of their business
2) they cannot charge you rent UNLESS there is a clause in the old lease where you need to inform them if anybody on the old lease will not be continuing to live there on the new lease.
(i.e the new lease aint a continuation of the old one)
loanmasterone:
The current landlord is making an attempt to find out if you have another permanent place to live. You want to be removed from signing the new ease. In order to know this the current landlord would need an address where you currently reside.

How do the landlord know that you are not residing in the rental unit with your mother illegally?

You did not inform your current landlord that you had moved and provided your landlord with a forwarding address.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

I don't know why it should matter who is on the lease as long as the rent is paid. Does your mother not have sufficient income to pay the rent on her own?
JMITW:
yes it is their business..they want to know how the rent is PAID, not PAYED. you need to officially notify them in writing that you are terminating the lease with your mother and supply any documentation they request to verify it…they also should have a forwarding address for you.
Pascal the Gambler:
They still charge rent to your mom, yes. The rent depends on income, etc so her benefit changes if you are gone, which is why they need proof you are gone.
babyboomer1001:
You need to give them written notice that you have moved out. Until you do, you are still liable for the rent. You also need to give them your forwarding address. They can obtain it if they have to but, why make it difficult for them. It will only cost you if they have to locate you through investigative measures.

No such requirement for you to be removed from a lease.

Happy Gramps:
were you required to inform them when you left the unit, as is most likely the case ?? if so, then you made that mistake………….your choices are to either inform them of your new address ( unless you have something to hide ?? ) or pay rent where you are not living
sunshine_mel:
Did you give them written notice that you would be leaving the property?
