The law requires only that you tell your landlord the name of your roommate. I wouldn't give him any more information.

DHCR's new regulations say nothing about a tenant providing the landlord with any more information about a roommate.

See Met Council's March 1996 fact sheet:

: IM ALSO wondering what this all means can someone sane please tell me.
: I tried to read about it but i feel like i dont understand (to legal ease for me.)
: My landlord wants more information about my roomate as of friday and hes hell bent on getting it. Ive never had to give up info on a roomate. Do i have to and if i dont what can they do to me. I only charge him half anyway but ill be damned if im going to have my landlord sitting in my tiny s--hole of an apt telling me what i have to do. I feel like if i give in here its only the begining . next thing you know ill have to show my tax returns to my landlord every year so they can decide if i can live there. It just feels too policed for me pleas share your thoughts.
: signed
: pissed of in NY again...LOl
