"Tenants have a clause in all past leases stipulating that they would be responsible for cost/labor of painting and any other renovation within our units."

Under the state Multiple Dwelling Law and the New York City Housing Maintenance Code, the landlord is responsible for painting apartments -- generally every three years.

Paying for actual renovations in your apartment could be to your advantage, instead of being subject to a monthly rent increase of 1/40 of the cost of improvements, plus renewal increases on top of those increases.
