I believe that increasing the security deposit to be equal to the new rent (or a multiple of the new rent, if the security deposit is more than one month's rent) is standard practice in the real estate industry.
Under rent stabilization in New York City, a landlord is allowed to increase the security deposit to be equal to the increased rent under a renewal lease.
: My LL is in the process of selling the building. He has just raised out rent $150.00 with 1 1/2 month notice and we are not on a lease. He has also asked us to put up another $150.00 for an increase of our security deposit so when he transfer over our security it is the same as the rent. Do we have to pay this difference of security ? I do not want to give this additional money am i legally bound to do so? We live in Staten Island NY
