What are my rights if I just found out I was illegally sublet to and what can I do? 4 Answers as of June 26, 2015

I just found out that I have been illegally sublet to. The person who sublet to me is mad that the landlord found out and is now trying to kick me out. I have lived here a month, paid rent and deposit. I have also put all utilities in my name. What rights do I have?

The person you rented from has to treat you as a renter [so must give legal notice to file suit to evict you] and/or admit he defrauded you and return all deposits and unearned rent. You can also sue him for the cost of moving, fraud, and any other damages you suffered. Talk to the landlord and see if you can work something out.

None. You can sue the person who did have the right to rent to you.
