Different MJ here from the original poster, wanting to get clarification on exactly what is required for a landlord to file for destabilization--I've read the 1993 amendment but had trouble following it.

If you're the first person to pay $2000 or more for a rent-stabilized apartment, the apartment will remain rent-stabilized until you vacate it? I've seen other posts here about what permits a landlord to apply for destabilization that made it sound like if you pay $2000 or more, regardless of whether you are the first tenant to do so or not, then the landlord can file for destabilization.

And how does the earning more than $250,000 for two calendar years figure into this? Is it that if you earn $250,000 two years in a row, then regardless of whether you were the first person to pay $2000 or more, the landlord could file for destabilization?

Or is the the landlord can apply for destabilization only if the current tenant has made more the $250,000 in the two preceding calandar years AND is paying more than $2000/is not the first tenant to pay $2000 or more? So that regardless of whether the $2000 rule applies to anyone who pays $2000 or more or just to the people after the first person to pay $2000 or more, if you haven't made $250,000 in the two preceding calendar years, then the landlord cannot apply for destabilization?
