: How long do I have to wait before I add this child to my lease? and
because I can have family members moving in with me (other than
overcrowding) do I have to hide the fact that I have a second child
prior to adding the name to the lease?
First we recommend you speak with an attorney as the issue of misleading
info could have an impact. But other than that, you are the tenant and you
are allowed to have your family reside with you. We don't think you need
to have your child's name on the lease--you have the tenancy rights, not
the child. (the child may have succession rights, but that's another issue).
Overcrowding can also be an issue, but it's common in NYC. Generally (we think
it's the Housing Maintenance Code -- haven't checked for awhile) indicates
how many people can reside in a unit per room and per square feet. Unless you're in a closet, it's probably OK.
: The Super has and will keep this lie to his-self and has been helpfull
in repairs and services, but the landlord has been known to show up on
occasion and drop in on tenants to talk business. I would like to know
the time frame in which I can freely talk to about additional occupants.
Let sleeeping dogs lie.
