Actress Kathleen Turner may be evicted from her New York cooperative apartment house, if the building's board members have their way. Turner allegedly sublet her apartjment to her sister-in-law without the board's permission, according to court papers. A hearing on the conflict, scheduled for Thursday in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, was re-scheduled for June 29. Turner now lives with her husband, Jay Weiss, in a Greenwich Village townhouse. After a year of being unable to find a buyer for the 10th-floor apartment at 148 W. 23rd St., they decided to sublet it and asked the board's permission to do so. Turner said in court papers that she got no reply, so a year later she renewed her request, specifying her sister-in-law Laurie Weiss Howell and her husband as subtenants.

"On the Horizon: Owning Home" (Money Make-Over, Aug. 5) failed to take into account a very important factor for Carole Panick. She wants to buy a condo in Santa Monica within five years. One way to speed up the process is to search for a motivated seller who will finance the purchase. It is possible to find a seller who owns the condo outright who might finance the entire purchase, or a seller who will carry back a second trust deed for 5% or 10% of the purchase price. Failing these possibilities, the Make-Over candidate might find she can enter into a lease-purchase agreement with a seller, also known as leasing with the option to buy. ALAN JAY WEISS Santa Monica
