: : Adding someone to your lease will result in him or her being legally responsible for your rent and will turn your renewal lease into a vacancy lease and increase your rent permanently by 18-20%.

: Are you sure? This is the first time I've heard this.

See other post after "me" re vacancy lease.

Legally responsible: there's a phrase for that "jointly and severally"? If there are two people named as tenants on the lease and they both sign the lease, the landlord can sue either one of them or both of them for all the rent.
