The analysis of some of the revisions to the Rent Stabilization Code, written by Judge Martin Shulman, from which Anna quoted, appeared in the New York Law Journal's April 5th online edition:

Further Reviewing Changes to Rent Stabilization

The quote about the complicated nature of rent regulation came from the 1981 decision of the New York Court of Appeals in LaGuardia v. Cavanaugh, 53 N.Y.2d 67.

The footnote defining a roommate's proportionate share of the legal regulated rent (LRR) reads:

Section 3: 9 NYCRR 2525.7. The Code 2000 calculates an occupant's proportionate share by dividing the LRR by the total number of tenants named on the lease and the total number of occupants. A tenant's spouse is not included in the number of tenants named in the lease and the total number of occupants will not include a tenant's family member or an occupant's dependent child.
