Most likely the tenant is not stabilized. Usually stabilization only applies to 6 unit buildings or more. You could check with DHRC to confirm the building's status. Since the tenant's lease ran out, they are likely renting month to month. You could, if you cared to, get them out with 30 days notice. As far as guests, as long as they are not disruptive, and not excessive in number at any one time, you can't do anything in particular about that. However since the tenant is month to month, you can give them notice of termination of occupancy at any time, pretty much for any reason, using that as leverage on the guest issue. And yes, you would likely have liability if someone was injured in the common areas of the building.
: I have a Tenant, who started with a one year lease in a two family brownstone in Brooklyn, I have not made up a new lease since the year 1998, does the prior lease still remain in effect? I am the owner of the brownstone, who also lives there. I need to know what rules to apply to her and myself. I also don't know if my building is rent regulated or stablized, its a two family house and she rents out the third floor, which is three rooms and a full bath, how would I find that out? Also, as I verbalized to her in front of the realestate broker who found us for her, that she would be the only tenant living in the 3 room partment, does she have a right to have her guest stay in her apartmetn when she is not there. Also, if this guest is injured, like if she fell down the steps in front of the house, are we liable? The steps and exterior of the house are always clean and free of anything that may cause someone to fall. Any info would be most appreciated. Thank you
