Landlord Must Offer Tenant Renewal Lease That Includes Wife's Name
LVT Number: #30942
Rent-stabilized tenant complained that landlord refused to add the name of tenant's spouse to his lease. Tenant submitted a copy of his 2007 marriage certificate. Landlord objected, saying that a family member could live in the apartment but didn't have to be added to the lease. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to add the wife to the lease.
