(it was never purchased when the building went co-op. i live in forest hills (queens) ny and do not know what my rights are regarding such a huge increase. can anyone help me or point me in the right direction to get the info i need???????thank you!
That's no larger than the RGB voted for rent stabilized apartments: 4-6% PLUS 20% vacancy. What the RGB is saying is 25% increase is a market increase.
It's even larger for rent undre $500: up to 35% increase.
It's your move now: negotiate a smaller increase or find a new apartment.
