One of the changes present in the new DHRC code is that a tenant in a stabilized apartment can no longer charge a roommate whatever the market will bare. There is a formula for calculating the roommate's rent based on regulated rent of the apartment.
Has anyone figured out the enforcement provisions of this yet. I found the piece of the code that give the calculation, but I didn't see anything about any cures provided if the tenant overcharges. Does the roommate have to file with the DHRC or sue in housing court? Does the LL have any participation here (ie. could this be used as grounds for an eviction)?
This is brand new, and one seems to have noticed. But given the popularity apartment sharing in NYC, this provision going to have a HUGE impact.
