: I would ask the roommate service first: face to face. They might have a history with the roommate or the landlord. Also: being on the lease gives you more rights if the apt is stabilized, maybe more clout with the landlord, but also brings more legal responsibilities. You could be held liable for the whole rent or the remaining rent on the lease. Talk to other people before you contact the landlord.
: ps: someone else might know if your roommate has anything to say about adding you to the lease: s/he might.
