Sign the lease renewal offer and return it. Hope the landlord
countersigns it without noticing the rent level. You have no
obligation to point it out to him.

Nothing in the rent stablization code says that a landlord
has to take the full increase allowable. If he countersigns
the lease renewal offer, your attitude should be that he has
agreed that the offer represents the full stabilized rent,
continuing in effect even after services are restored.
The landlord may disagree, but you'd be on fairly solid
ground on this point.

: I previously posted on this and no one responded. I'd appreciate some guidance as I need to know what to do pretty soon.

: I just won a rent reduction for reduced services (individual apartment) because of various things--wont bore you with the details. It is on appeal via PAR.

: Just got a lease renewal. The amount in the lease is for the amount of the reduced rent! I thought they just had to put in the normal amount and I would continue to pay the reduced rent.

: My question:
: If I sign this lease, for the reduced amount, do I pay the reduced amount even if services are restored and the rent reduction ended?

: This will make the difference between my signing a one or two-year lease, so some guidance on this would be very very greatfully appreciated.
