* If your lease is the standard form lease from the Real Estate Board of New York, you seem to have the right to have an unlimited number of roommates, according to a recent court decision. *
This isn't so. There is a stibulation with the Housing Department that allows so many persons per square feet within one apartment, even if they are family members.
And at DHCR.
The law reads, Provided that a tenant continues to occuppy his or her apartment as their primary residence, each tenant named on the lease, or each statutory tenant, has the right to have one unrelated roomate and that roomate's dependant children reside with them in an apartment. It appears that relatives don't count.
