My mother has been living in a Brooklyn rent controlled apartment since 1969. At present
she pays a rent which represents a 500% increase of that paid in 1969. She has been retired
for the past four years and is concerned, as the rent has consistently increased every year
for many years prior to and after her retirement.Recently she went to the department of housing
and the apartment is listed as rent controlled as of 1984 but there is no status giving thereafter.
Giving the 31 years in the apartment, is the current increase standard (taken into account fuel
costs, building improvement, etc.)? If rent control laws have changed should this have effected
the status on the the apartment.If not, what direction can be taken to further investigate this matter ?
thanks for any information you can provide
