My wife and I moved last spring into an apartment where we are paying over 2000.00 a month in a supposedly non-stablized apartment. This is a pre-war building and I know for a fact that other tenents are paying rent-stablized rents ( i.e. reasonable ) The super in our building told my wife the Landlord is wrongfully overcharging us since the previous tenants only paid 1500.00. We recently received a "Sub-Lease" renewal lease which informs us that the rent will go up another $150.00 month in April. I remember reading somewhere that if improvements are made to the apartment that the previous rent rate can be voided and the landlord can charge at a higher rate. In this case well over 500.00 more a month thereby removing the stablized status of the apartment. Is there something fishy going on that I can do something about?
