In Reply to: How can I find out if my apartment is subject to rent regulation laws? posted by Fritz on June 16, 2000 at 00:03:55:
: My apartment building does not show up in the database of regulated buildings available here, however I understand that the database is from 1994, and may be incomplete. I suspect that the building may (or should) be regulated.
: How can I determine if my apartment building (upper east side NYC) should be regulated?
: Thank you.
If it was built before 1974 and has ever had 6 or more units, it probably is stabilized. There are some weird exceptions. A more current database is on
Get a Rent History from DHCR.
Remember: the database and the Rent History both contain only the information a landlord provides when it registers stabilized units. If it does not register or provides incorrect data, the DHCR data will be incorrect. But it's a start.
Ask tenants who have lived there awhile.
