In Reply to: Unreasonable Rent Increase posted by Lesley on August 08, 2000 at 12:22:30:
I received the same thing yesterday, but under actual rent which was lower, was my rent ammount and the reason for this amount is that it was lowered rent.
My apartment goes for $768?? and the amount I pay is $650. I guess I am paying market prices in Ridgewood, Queens.
Read yours carefully and ask the landlord in reference to that.
: I am in the process of resigning my lease for the 3rd year for my Park Slope, Brooklyn studio apartment. My rent the first year was $750. My landlord increased it $15 to $765 the next (which is what I am still paying).
: A few days ago I got an "Annual Apartment Registration" form (never gotten one before) which states that my rent was $828.68/month (first bit of confusion). A few days later I get my Lease Renewal Form which states that my landlord is increasing my rent 4% ON TOP of the mystery amount of $828.68 per month (second bit of confusion).
: My question is- what give's?! Has anyone heard of such a thing- meaning a 16% rent increase, without any notice, and 2 months late mind you. Or is my landlord a little confused himself?
: Any advice would be appreciated.
: Thanks very much.
