In Reply to: CAN I CHARGE A ROOMATE RENT_? CO-OP SAYS NO ROOOMATES? posted by Pat in NYC CO-OP on October 27, 1999 at 14:49:15:
: I am in co-op that has always given me problems for roomates. I found all the legislation making their stance unlawful; however, there is no specific mention of 1) CO-OP's being subject to RPL 2) Ability to charge rent to roomates. Does anyone have any insight. Thanks a Lot!!
Yes, the Roommate Law, RPL 235-f, is valid for Co-op's, too.
If you can't find any decisions in TenantNet's NYC Housing Court decision collection, go to the NY Public Library (not all branches, call or look up online) or any nearby Law library and look it up in McKinney's Consolidated Laws of NY, Book 49.
Is there a law that says a tenant can charge a roommate rent, coop or not? Probably not, except maybe in the HMC or MDL under the term 'boarder' for roommate.
