: Brooklyn, NY; Rent stabilized;8-16 units(It's one building, but two different addresses, so I'm not sure what it's considered).

: My landlord required two months security deposit (due to a lack of proof of income they said, I'm in the restaurant business), is this legal, and is it true I can request a refund?


: Landlord has ignored my requests verbally and via certified mail for minor repairs (water damage to ceiling, leaking radiator etc.) what recourse do I have?

How to complain:

: Landlord did not attach the DHCR rent stabilation rider or show me how the amount of rent charged was arrived at. Can I demand this?

Yes, and call DHCR, ask for a Rent History: this will list all registered rents since 1984.
