To follow up on previous discussion threads about how much rent a tenant can charge a roommate, and the possible consequences if a tenant overcharges a roommate, check out these links to:
(1) DHCR's final amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code for New York City -- http://tenant.net/DHCR_info/newcode/final/rscsr2.htm -- search for "a new section 2525.7"
(2) DHCR's proposed amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code for New York City -- http://tenant.net/DHCR_info/newcode/rscsr2.pdf -- search for "a new section 2525.7"
(3) The comments of tenant lawyers about the proposed amendments -- http://tenant.net/DHCR_info/newcode/legserv-RSC.html -- search for "ROOMMATES"
Note that the final amendments, for the first time, give a definition of "occupant's proportionate share of the legal regulated rent."
The final amendments also state that an overcharge is "a violation of the code" -- rather than "profiteering in violation of section 2520.3" of the code, as originally proposed by DHCR.
