: What reason did the landlord state for you going "market rate"?
I would like to clarigy my situation. I was ALWAYS a market rate unit, but for some reason, I had nominal rent increases using the standard forms. I did call the Dept. of Housing and was told that I could not file a complaint through them, because my lease said I was renting a market rate unit. (There are also lots of rent stabalized units here) My question was if I had any recourse against such an excessive increase. There have been no improvements to my apt. either, while new tenants get new kitchens, bathrooms, etc. I thought that it might be beneficial to hire an attorney to negotiate my next lease, but apparently not. Is there any way that I can officially protest such a steep increase?
