Need help interpreting DHCR rent history

Posted by Stacy on May 17, 2000 at 11:35:39:

In a reply to my post last week ("managing agent charging broker's fee--illegal?"), someone suggested I contact DHCR to obtain a rent history for my deregulated apartment, to make sure it was legally deregulated. (The apt is a studio in a pre-1974, six-unit building). Recieved the history yesterday in the mail, but am not sure what to make of it. It starts in 1996, and reads (verbatim):

1996 & 1997: Temporarily Exempt, Commercial/Professional (NO C/
1998: Permanently Exempt, High Rent Vacancy
1999: Exempt, Registration Not Required

(I've no idea what that (NO C/ is supposed to mean--looks to me like something was cut off). No actual rents are listed.
What I'm trying to figure out is exactly what "High Rent Vacancy" means. The apt doesn't rent over the $2000 threshold--we pay $1400, the people before us, who moved into the apt in Nov 1999, paid $1350. I've no idea what the place rented for before that. Any help figuring this out would be much appreciated!

(Also, Anna asked me to let everyone know how well e-mailing DHCR for a history worked. I e-mailed May 10 asking how to requst a history; one showed up in the mail yesterday with no further follow-up. Not bad.)
