In Reply to: DHCR Rent Deregulation cap for absent roommate posted by Scott Evans on July 13, 1999 at 17:33:57:
If the landlord signed the lease after he received it from you without the signatures of some of the roommates, he would be hard pressed to include the income of the non-signing roommates in an application to DHCR.
Did the landlord get vacancy increases when the roommates changed at lease renewal time? If so, there would be absolutely no basis for the landlord's application to DHCR.
You should consult an attorney who is experienced with high rent deregulation proceedings at DHCR.
: My landlord is attempting to deregulate my
apartment. We originally had four people living
: and on the lease. Two people left but only one
was removed by the landlord on the lease. Every
: had to renew our lease my roomate and I would
cross out the old names and then sign the lease
: that John Doe no longer lived there. My
landlord is petitioning that my aprtment be
deregulated and that the absent John Doe's
: income be included in the $175,000 cap. How do
I fight this?
: Help. Thanks Scott
