Subject: Re: Rent Stabilization--do I have it?

: My lease is almost up and my landlord would love to jack up the rent to a level I cannot afford.

: How can I find out if my apartment is rent-stabilized? If it is, how can I find out my rights? Your original lease should state it across the top. You can also call the DHCR, but the records are not always great. For example, if you live in a building under the "421-a" rule built before 1984 or are renting in a building that was previously co-oped, their records may say the building is rent stabilized but, in fact, your apartment may not be. If you are rent stabilized, the landlord must offer you a renewal lease with the current stabilized increases (2% & 4%). If the building is not stabilized, the landlord does not even have to renew the lease.
