I am applying for loft law protection, along with several other tenants in my building. I understand that the unit has to have been residentially occupied from 2008-2009 to qualify for protection. My particular unit has been residential since at least 2001. My husband and I moved into the building in July 2009.

I was going to include my sublease with the previous tenants as a supporting document, proving that we were residing in the unit as of July 2009. Although WE weren't living there prior to that, the previous tenants were, though I don't really have any proof of that, besides the sublease. Do you think its to our advantage to include this or is do you think it would be detrimental?

Additional and unrequired information some times has a way of having unintended consequences. It's a judgment call, but unless you need it, I'd hold it back. Of course you might want to consult with loft law experts.
