Is your apartment rent controlled? When did you move in? If you succeeded someone else (parents, siblings, etc.), when did they move in?

If your apartment is rent controlled, the landlord might be entitled to a 7% rent increase every year, until the maximum collectible rent (MCR) equals the maximum base rent (MBR). You don't have a right to a renewal lease under rent control. Check with DHCR to learn the rent regulated status of your apartment. If your apartment is rent controlled and if your landlord is entitled to an increase in the MBR and/or MCR, you should have received notices about these annual increases.

: My landlord had asked for a rent increase at the end of January. I had told the landlord that I had wanted the increase in writing. I have not paid the increase because I have not received it in writing yet. Is it right to do this? It is a rent controlled 4 apartment building located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I have lived here most of my life.
