I agree with everything EGH wrote.
And I don't understand how being offered a lower rent really affects Pete's decision between a one-year renewal lease and a two-year renewal. The one-year lease is generally the better choice.
: Sign the lease renewal offer and return it. Hope the landlord
: countersigns it without noticing the rent level. You have no

: Nothing in the rent stablization code says that a landlord

: 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.
