: 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).

Ok, then I feel alittle better.

: 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.

My wife and I share the livingroom (studio style) and the kids the badroom.

: : 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.

I don't plan on avoiding the landlord, I am not going to invite the landlord into my apartment. If he does find out and the landlord wants to make an issue out of it. (threats, harrasment, etc.) I want to know just how long before I signed the lease (first lease) before any issue can be fought.
