If the apartment is not rent stabilized, your landlady can ask for more than one month's rent as a security deposit. What she probably wants is for you to increase your security deposit to be equal to the new rent. This also happens with rent stabilized apartments when leases are renewed.

: I just received a new lease from the landlord I have been renting from for 1 year with the expected rent increase of $100 more than I was paying per month. That I agreed on but she also put a new security deposit of the new months rent in the box on the lease that is normally for new tenants. Of course I am going to address this but she can't charge me a NEW security deposit when she still is holding my orginal one can she? This may be a stupid question but I think it was just a reflex on her part.
