Landlord trying to establish 'illegal tenant'

Posted by J. Shunk on January 05, 2000 at 19:25:33:

During the course of 1999, my roommate and I (who are the only two on our
lease), had a temporary visitor for a few months. We were letting her live
with us until she could find an apartment. She had her mail sent to our
mailbox, and after she moved out, she didn't have all of her mail forwarded.
We received a notice from our landlord that she was considered a tenant, and
he wanted to see her tax information. We are rent stabilized, and she might
put us over the $175,000 limit. We obviously do not want to lose our rent
stabilized status, but we suspect the landlord is trying to make a case for
this. Can we lose our rent stabilization status because of this?

Also, the only way the landlord could have known about her name was to
have seen her mail. Is that legal?
