I have the option of taking over the lease from my current roommate when his lease is up here - it's a big one bedroom apartment, full kitchen and bath, nice wood floors, prewar building, nice molding, quiet, decent neighbors, rent-stabilized, super in building, close to everything, off 3rd Avenue on 74th Street. The rent is higher than I want to pay, but others have told me it's a good price - $1,115. The good thing about staying here is, no broker fee, and no moving fee. I like Bay Ridge a lot. Is this a good deal?

Is that the price your roommate currently pays? Are you on the lease now or does taking over the lease mean you will sign a new one? If you are not currently on the lease but wil be getting a new one with your name on it, you will most likely have to pay an 18% increase in the monthly rent. Rent stabilzation allows for this- it's called something like a vacancy increase. I'm sure there's more about it if you google nyc tenant laws.

Did you already factor that in?
