This is not legal advice at all but lots of people don't split the rent 50/50. Lots of people move into a place planning on paying more or less than half the rent because one room has better light or is quieter or bigger or whatever.
: I live in Brooklyn and my apartment is rent stabilized. My rent is $1701.53. I was recently laid off from my job and am about out of money. I am confident that I will find employment soon, but...?
: How risky would it be if I took in a roommate and he/she paid what would be 65% of the rent until I find another job. My unemployment insurance doesn't begin to cover my basic expenses of rent, utilities, food, transportation. Once I find a job it would be half the rent. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment. Thank you.
