Big rent increase in rent stabilized buildings?

Postby Caywi » Sun Mar 31, 2019 6:46 am


I'm renting an apartment in a rent stabilized building and I'm currently paying $1,172.49. I got my renewal lease form and according to it my rent has increased to be $1,300.00 ($127.15 more per month!). I called the landlord and they confirmed this increase .... is this legal???

I would appreciate very much any response!

Thanks very much in advance.

While this post seems OK, what spammers often do these days is put up something innocuous at first, and then come back later and edit it with improper links.

More than that, this post is, word for word, a duplicate of a 2005 post at http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6484
