What is the name of your state? NY
I live in NYC, the rented unit is a three bedroom appartment, recently I receive a letter from my landlord.
She states on the letter that due to the contract "the rented unit will be only occupied by three preson(s) otherwise the tenant will be charged an additional $100 for per additional person". So from the next month the tenants need to pay additional $200 rental fee.
The moral of the story is that, one of my housemate and me bring our girl friends back home regularly (they do not obtain keys) and they sometimes stay overnight approximately 2-4 times a week. This situation noticed by the landlord several times, so she now wants us to pay $200 more per month.
Is this a legal action for a landlord?
How to interpret the term "occupied by no more than three person(s)"
How can we interpret the term "occupied"? Does that mean some specific period of time?
Thank you for time!
