: My roomate and I are both signers on the lease for our rent-stabilized 2 bdrm. apt. in Chelsea.
: I want to know if:

Answers assume that in addition to signing the lease, you both are actually listed as tenants on it:

: a) she can add her boyfriend to the lease without my permission


: b) she can have him move in without my permission


: c) if she leaves the apt. can I just renew the lease or will we have to sign a whole new lease thereby increasing the rent by a whole lot?

should be renewal lease, not vacancy lease.

: Basically what are my rights as one of the signers of the lease concerning another person moving in?

Read about the Roommate Law and your other basic rights:
it is between you and your co-tenant.
