Simple questions about my landlord (PLEASE HELP)

Posted by Joel Holland on October 27, 1999 at 10:27:49:

I live in 4 unit building in Park Slope, Brooklyn, maybe 60 yrs old. I had a
1-year lease that expired Aug. 99, and have been month-to-month (rollover?)
since. I pay $850 a month for a 1 bedroom, and so do 2 other tenants in the
building. The 4th tenant was forced to move out yesterday, because her rent was
to increase from $750 to $1250 (after 18 years of residence!) The building is not
a coop or condo. -Ok, so here are my questions:

1. I want a lease, but my landlord will not give me one because the building is
only 4 units. Is that legal?

2. What percentage can my rent be raised if I have a rollover lease?
and how often?

3. Am I rent controlled? stabilized? what am I?

4. Do I retain the rights of the original lease on a month-to-month lease

The landlord has his office below my Apt. and shares it with his brother a Lawyer,
