My concern is that the landlord may discover his mistake, and I'll get stuck with a two-year lease at the regular amount--which I wouldnt want. If it wasn't for the possibility of two years at the rolled-back rent, I would want a one-year lease.

See, my rent is supposed to be $1400, but was rolled back to $1300. At the top of the lease he fills in the blanks with the right amount (1400 plus 4% for one year and 1400 plus 6% for two years). Just as usual.

Then, where it says "lower rent to be charged," he has my rolled back rent--$1300.

Since the right amount is one part of the lease, it is not clear to me how he will react if I write in $1300 and then "two" years. He may cross out $1300 and put in the right amount. So then, if services are restored, I get a lousy 6% increase from the old rent. No?
