Raising rent despite numerous code violations

Posted by Martha on February 23, 2000 at 12:37:02:

My landlord has numerous code violations against him. I was told that landlords cannot raise your rent if they have a certain number of violations outstanding against them (or if they have been cited for a certain number). Is this true and, if so, how many is too many? Does the nature of the violation matter (his current outstanding are most likely minor,but have been significant in the past - e.g. no heat/hot water).

I live on the upper west side, no rent regulation, i have a written lease, there are 13-15 units in the building, it is pre-war but was gutted & renovated last year, and is not a co-op or condo.
