renew a lease or even have one. So he can't charge more rent then
the MBR.find out what the MBR is and what damages you can get if you
were overcharged. file it with the agency that handles it or take him to
housing court. I think you could also get the status back to a controlled
apartment if you want because you were denied your due process.
