I would still ask him . What is your rational for raising the rent
regardless of the fact that he paid off the politicians to charge
"market rates." Perhaps if he can't justify the raise he might not ask
for it. I would do it. Afte all if you were a landlord would you raise the
rent so much for a good tenat?

: The short answer is no. If the apartment isn't subject to regulation, they can charge what ever they want. This is on a new/renewal lease, or with notice if month to month.

: The only possibility to prevent this is to show that the apartment is or should be regulated. Some possibilities:

: - It meets the criteria but the the LL never registered it
: - It was knocked out of stabilization improperly

: Either of these, or any others that might exist will require significant research and/or legal fees.
