In Reply to: Re: Tenant May Be Liable for Charging Roommate More Than 'Proportionate Share' of Legal Rent posted by Gracie on June 09, 2001 at 01:13:14:
At $2350 your apartment is not rent stabilized. As such, your roommate (the primary tenant) is free to make whatever arrangements he wants with you. (In rent stabilized apartments, which offer below market rent for affordable housing, a tenant cannot profiteer by renting out rooms for more than a subtenant's proportionate share of the rent).
If you agreed to the rent upon moving in there's nothing you can really do about it ... short of looking elsewhere for an apartment of your own. Which really is not a bad idea, because there's plenty of apartments available for way less than your paying -- if you're willing to look outside of prime Manhattan.
