: My oh my, what a mess these things turn into. I do have a lawyer who I like and trust but would still like your input. I moved into an apartment with a 1 yr lease over $2000. The landlord bought the bldg a few years ago and is renovating apartments one by one. Of course this means I hear construction every day including nights and weekends.

Just one observation re your lawyer--it is good to have a lawyer in any case involving eviction or other court action, or large sums of money. Otherwise the cost of the lawyer can exceed any possible recovery.
Sometimes at the DHCR not having a lawyer can actually be an advantage, if the other side is represented. The problem is that you have to do all the work yourself.
