There is a DHCR form that the tenant can fill out, that helps establish that you are a potential successor. Notice To Owner Of Family Members Residing With The Named Tenant In The Apartment Who May Be Entitled To Succession Rights/Protection From Eviction (DHCR Form RA- 23.5).
We have a booklet available on the Tenant Learning Platform called “How Protect Your Rent Stabilized Apartment From a Nonprimary Residence Claim”. It is not exactly on the succession topic, but its close, and the booklet lists all the ways you can prove that a tenant or occupant is a primary resident of a Rent Stabilized apartment.
