20% Rent Increase

Posted by Hunter on April 20, 1999 at 11:16:47:

I have a one-year lease in Manhattan which I would like to renew.
The landlord agreed to renewal, but with a 20% increase in rent.
I am unsure if my apartment is rent-controlled or rent-regulated.
My questions are as follows:

1) How do I find out if apartment is rent-regulated?
2) If it is, are there limits on rent increases?
3) If it is not, are there limits on rent increases for current tenants?
4) If it is not, what actions would you recommend (besides moving out,
which is an option, but do not want to)?
