It depends upon your lease. If you have a lease provision providing for attorneys fees, then yes--if you lose. But if you win, YOU get attorney fees.
Standard leases usually, but not always, have attorneys fee provisions.
If your lease doesn't say so, the answer is a big, fat NO. No attorneys fees for either party. (unless the law says otherwise--unlikely.)
As for your second question -- in NY rent stabilized buildings, the answer is yes. I dont know about other states or circumstances.
: also if the rent increases do i have to pay the increase of the rent and extra to bring my original security deposit up to the current rent agreement
