asking for lower rent???

Posted by anon on February 08, 2002 at 03:35:30:

Hi all,

W/ the current rental market due to the disasters that occurred on 9/11 and the bad economy, I've noticed that the rents have substantially decreased across the board for apartments in Manhattan. In light of this current market, my rent was still increased for the next lease term. (I do live in a rent stabilized building so it was increased 4.?% My question is, do you think the landlord would allow me to keep my current rent or even decrease the rent, on the basis that if I don't renew the lease, they probably couldn't get a lot for the apt. because of the drop in rents? What do you all think?

p.s. the landlord scammed me w/ a "broker's fee" when I began my lease. I wrote him a letter and all but still no response. Basically he seems money hungry.
