Here's a more permanent link, from TenantNet, to the June 5, 2001 article in The New York Times, Rule Limits Overcharging of Roommates:
It's interesting that the Rent Stabilzation Code (RSC), in Section 2525.6 (b), specifically provides for treble damages when a tenant overcharges a subtenant:
"The rental charged to the subtenant by the tenant shall not exceed the legal regulated rent plus no more than a 10-percent surcharge payable to the tenant if the housing accommodation is sublet fully furnished. Where a tenant violates the provisions of this subdivision, the subtenant shall be entitled to treble damages."
However, the RSC makes no similar provision, in Section 2525.7, about overcharging a roommate.
