It is against rent regs for a landlord to force a tenant, or subtenant to agree, as a condition of renting the apartment, to waive any rights he/she has under rent stablization. What your LL has done is called a conditional rental and it's a no-no. Meaning, as a condition of your getting the apt, you inadvertently agreed to sublet, when in fact there was no primary tenant to sublet from and you are the prime tenant. I think you all should pool your resources and confer with a tenant attorney. Having not seen your lease agreement or any other paperwork or evidence, and if your situation is as you say, you stand about a 90% chance of ending up being declared the prime tenant and get the lease. But it's going to cost you time and money.
