My roommate and I moved into an apartment in NYC last Nov. It's a co-op, and apparently neither rent controlled or stabilized (we had just moved to the city and were not aware of these key rental issues). When we were moving in, the property manager (in front of both of us), said that as long as we were "good" tenants, paid the rent on time and didn't bother her, it was very unlikely our rent would be increased if we renewed our lease. Basically, we have 2 problems. We've had a mouse(!) for the past few months and asked the super to deal with it so we wouldn't have to bother the property manager. The super put in some of those sticky traps, but the mouse is still running loose. And we just found out our rent is increasing by $150/month. We've paid on time every month and not called her once. Do we have any rights regarding A: having her pay for an exterminator or B: disputing what we think is a really high rent increase? If we fight her on any of these things, can she just kick us out? Thanks so much for your help!!
