Recently there was a thread about landlords asking for the Social Security numbers of all the people living in an apartment, especially when a rent stabilized lease is coming up for renewal.
There is nothing in the Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) or the Rent Stabilization Code (RSC) that allows a landlord to ask for Social Security numbers. In fact, the RSC allows for Social Security numbers to be deleted when a landlord attempts to deregulate an apartment because of high rent ($2,000) and high income ($175,000).
Below is a link to an article from Bankrate.com, Guard your Social Security number, which should be relevant to this issue.
