: My neighbor is a rent control tenant (or is it stabilized? he's been there since the seventies) living in NYC(Queens to be exact) in a six family tenament. He has had a roommate for about a year now. His lease renewal is coming up he and his roommate are getting along really well, can his roommates name be added to the lease? Will the rent control be no longer eligible? If it makes any difference it's a 4 room apartment.(kitchen bathroom, living room, bedroom and a half room)
Renewal lease? probably rent stabilized. If so, adding a roommate to the lease gives the landlord the right to charge a vacancy increase (will be > 20%) in addition to the renewal increase of 2%:1 year or 4%:2 year renewal.
(for it to be rent controlled, he would have moved in no later than early 70's and would not usually be signing renewal leases)
