NYC 🐠: Does anyone have experience moving in with a SO who got affordable housing in the housing lottery?

How is it different from moving in with a SO who did not get affordable housing in the housing lottery ?

Keep the lease on her name and you can "help" her out by writing her a check. It's easy.

God I hate people who consider this kind of scam. The purpose of those taxpayer funded subsidy programs is to help people live in cities who otherwise couldn't afford to on their own. You will be as bad as people who pretend they got injured falling in a city building or selling food stamps while buying high end electronics (ok not the best examples but in a hurry, you get my point)

Girlfriend was able to get an amazing deal on a 1br in Hells Kitchen. We were planning to move in together next year anyway but if I were to join her on the lease it'd bump up the "household income" and she would no longer qualify. Tempted to "move in" in secret without singing a lease and if anyone asks I'm just the boyfriend who visits on the weekends. Does anyone else have experience doing something similar? Will we get in trouble if the doorman sees me coming over with a suitcase every Thursday? Any advice greatly appreciated, thanks!

On a related note, I wonder how much average rent would drop if all this subsidized housing hit the market at market rates

No you are not technically anything except breaking the law and the social contract that goes with those programs. Sorry but you don't get to call yourself a hero here. Grow up and accept that your household would be able to pay for the unit without subsidy, which is what you already said is the expectation of the program.

I also think your SO is a terrible person is she is considering going along with this. Does she not know anyone in a similar situation to her that she would be screwing over by not giving up her slot when you move in?

EY1 the housing is based on household income so if I were to join her on the lease she would no longer qualify for the apartment

That's the plan, I guess I'm just worried if I get caught she might get evicted or fined

Keep it in cash if you must. Gift cards, even.

Bro don't tell anyone. Doorman won't snitch.

Ross and Chandler will keep quiet but you totally know Joey will spill the beans

So many people do this. No one cares. They can’t really ever prove you’re a permanent resident and would rather not deal with it. The building gets their money in the end so it’s whatever to them. It’s only complicated when it comes to getting additional key FOBs and all that. If you don’t mind me asking what’s the salary limit to qualify ? Reason I ask is because my SO and I are trying to figure out something now. She has a good deal on a studio now but not optimal for two people. I don’t live with her full time and prob won’t til we get outta the city. So this could be something that works for us as well...

What makes you think you're entitled to subsidized housing?

Well my GF will be living there regardless and she does qualify ($30k salary, she currently lives in a gang neighborhood in Bushwick to afford rent lol). Technically I would actually be helping the situation by joining her and reducing demand for an apartment in a congested market that would go to waste anyway since I'd only be there 1 night a week.

I really wish my company would reallocate the funds spent on constant cultural engagement zoom events (which I’m always too swamped to attend) to paying some of my phone and internet bills (75% of which is used for work).

I'm a woman in tech, and over the course of my career I've experienced some egregious instances of sexism. In addition to impacting my career progression, it's made me a lot more bitter and reactive than I'd like to be, which I find obviously detrimental particularly in continued male dominated workplaces.

Women - other than therapy, have you found anything helpful for dealing with this kind of thing?

Men - is there a best way to talk to you about unintentionally sexist behaviour?
