Some ways to show prime tenant still holds place as primary residence -- their name and mailbox is still there, still receiving mail. If you are a sublet, you would send the rent money to prime tenant, who would write out a check/money order and send it to LL. LL will refuse rent from you directly as you are not the tenant -- if he/she is dumb enough to accept directly from you and not legal tenant that would establish a relationship between you and LL.
Before you get into this -- and it sounds like you should trust your gut NOT to -- get something in writing sent to the LL by certified return receipt or better yet FEDEX (signature upon receipt), dated and signed by the prime tenant that they will be subletting to you (your name should appear in the letter) for x amount of time, let's say, 6 months, with the understanding that the sublet may go beyond 6 months but that they will send another letter sent same way to verify an extension on the sublet.
As rent stabilized tenants, they have up to 2 years to sublet legally. GET EVERYTHING in writing, signed and dated. Can't emphasize enough.
: In order for a prime tenant to sublet a rent stabilized apt. the prime tenant must demonstate that their absence will be temporary and that they intend to return. How does one go about proving that the "absence will be temporary" and that there is "intent to return"?
: Any responses would be much appreciated. Thank you in acvance.
