For an apartment to be deregulated because of high income, the apartment must rent for more than $2,000 a month and the household income must be over $175,000 a year for two consecutive years.

: During the course of 1999, my roommate and I (who are the only two on our
: lease), had a temporary visitor for a few months. We were letting her live
: with us until she could find an apartment. She had her mail sent to our
: mailbox, and after she moved out, she didn't have all of her mail forwarded.
: We received a notice from our landlord that she was considered a tenant, and
: he wanted to see her tax information. We are rent stabilized, and she might
: put us over the $175,000 limit. We obviously do not want to lose our rent
: stabilized status, but we suspect the landlord is trying to make a case for
: this. Can we lose our rent stabilization status because of this?

: Also, the only way the landlord could have known about her name was to
: have seen her mail. Is that legal?
