: : I am the person who has her sister as a landlord, and now there has been a new development. I got a letter today saying that since I have been here for four years, with no rent increase (that's because the landlord refused to do a renewal lease) they are raising the rent from $750 to $950 as of September 1. If they had done the rent stabilized percentages, I would only be up to about 875 by now.
: : The letter was not sent by registered mail. Can they just raise it by $200 like this? I live in Queens in New York City.
Unfortunately, if the apartment isn't rent-stabilized, they can raise the rent as much as they like.
: Yes, probably. They need to give you notice 30 days before a rent due date. Then you pay it, move or negotiate. Registered? I don't know. They probably have to do it the same way they would do a notice to vacate, unless your lease requires more. Search = 30-day notice on this board.
