: Zero. There is no such thing as a month to month lease with rent stabilised apartments. A renewal lease is to be given 120 days before your one year or two year lease is up. If you do not have either a one year or two year lease the landlord has no rights to any increase. There are very strict guildlines which a landlord must follow to be allowed increases. If you are not provided with a rent rider which shows your rights the landlord loses his/her rights to a rent increase. these are supposed to be attached to your initial lease and all renewals
: However the current renewal rent increases are 4% for one year 6% for two years. But in your case it is zero.
1) I wouldn't say he is not entitled to ANY increase. The failure to offer a renewal lease means he can't get any guideline board increases. Other lawful increases could be collected.
2) Also, the failure to issue a rent stabilized rider to a lease does not prohibit the owner from a rent board increase immediately. The tenant must file a complaint with dhcr that no rider was given. dhcr will then issue an order directing the owner to issue the rider within 20 days of the order. If the owner doesn't comply within 20 days, then the rent board increases are stayed.
