Hi Angela --
Please check your lease. If it's a Blumberg form, it'll state in its form title what exactly it is.
There is a search engine on tenant.net that you can type in your address and find out if the building you are in has rent stabilization. The surefire way is to call DHCR.
Also call DHCR at 718-739-6400 and you can find out if the building and your apartment are rent stabilized and get a rent history on your apartment to see if there's a possible overchargement going on.
If the pet has been known to be around and is not a noise nuisance at late hours to your neighbors, then your pet would normally stay put. But if it's at risk of your losing your place (and you're not rent stabilized or rent controlled) then there's a possibility to look at finding a good home for your pet.
Good luck and let us know what happens.
: Hello. I've got a letter from the building management threatening to evict us because they found out we have a dog. I research the Pet Law in NYC (I live in Brooklyn in 6 store building) and I beleive this law applies to us, because the dog has been living with us for 2 years and always kept openly and notoriously, superintendant likes to play with him, we have tons of pictires and video tapes with our dog inside the apartment and outside the building. But my concern is that even if we would win and continue to keep the dog they probably would not renew the lease for the next term (lease expires September 30, 2001), but looking for the new apartment is not what we need now (I just had a baby last month). I know that for rent stabilize apartment they HAD to renew lease, but I have no idea what my apartment is. How can I find out what my apartment is and if it is not rent stabilize do I have any rights to have my lease renewed. By the way we never had any other problems with management (always pay in time, no complains from neighbors).
: Thanks in advance, Angela.
