What does "No record of a registration statement...." mean?

Posted by Ray Tristanovich on February 07, 2000 at 15:23:35:

I've been trying to find out whether the apartment I'm subleasing is rent-stabilized without tipping
my hand to the leaseholder. (I've been here nearly two years....) I asked DHCR for a rent regulation
history. They sent me a form that had the followingbox checked:

"No record of a Registration Statement is on file for the years:"

... and "1984 present" is written in afterwards.

Does that mean the building is NOT stabilized? If so, that strikes me as odd -- it's clearly prewar,
all-rental, and consists of 18 units.

One odd thing: In the lobby of the building, among the signs indicating the building's owner and
registration number and whatnot, there's one odd sign (addresses changed to protect us all!):
"123 Blah Blah Street, a.k.a. 321-323 Such and Such Street". I asked DHCR for records for the
a.k.a. address, but was informed that because I couldn't prove residence there (I get my mail
at 123 Blah Blah Street) the department couldn't release any records.

Anybody have any ideas what gives? Will getting a warrant of habitability help?
