Yes, everything you described is legal. Prices have gone up in 17 years and so should the rent. Of course you or your parents are free to negotiate with the landlord or look for another place.
Looking around at what going rents are would be a good idea. It is not the landlord's responsibility to look after or care for your aging parents. That responsibility is yours.
: My senior, Italian-speaking parents rent an apt in a 4-family building in Brooklyn. They've been there for 17 years and the new off-site landlord of a few months just raised them $315. Do they have any recourse at all? Is this legal? Can they fight this? Only Dad is on SS, very limited income. Help.
