General Info Needed

Posted by Lee on March 12, 1999 at 13:52:07:

I recently moved to New York and, with a friend, rented an apartment in Hell's Kitchen. I have a few general questions: Where can I find information on rent regulation in non rent-stabilized apartments? The apartment was advertised to us at one price, and after we had paid the deposit to the broker, he told us that there had been a mistake; the rent was actually $95 per month more than advertised. The landlord would not agree to the advertised price, but did offer us the second month at 50% off so that over the course of the year, the rent would only be about $25 per month more. I am concerned that next year the rent will go up so much that I can't afford it (I am really at my limit right now, paying more than I thought I was going to).

Also, 7 weeks after I signed the lease, and 6 weeks after I moved into the apartment, I still haven't gotten a copy of the lease. I rang the landlord/management agency to ask if I could have it, and they told me that the landlord hadn't signed it yet. That was two weeks ago.

Should I be concerned about all this?
