Changing names on a shared apartment

Posted by Gokhan Karakus on September 03, 1996 at 18:56:13:

I am changing two of my roommates on our shared apartment at the
same time as the lease is being renewed. According to building
management this change allows the landlord to raise the rent an
additional 14% because a whole new lease must be drawn up for our
rent stabilized apartment. As my name is on the old lease don't I have the
the right to renew the lease under the existing RCB annual 5% increase?
Does the landlord have to accept new names on the lease under
existing regulations?
