10 units? why aren't you stabilized? does your old lease say you are?

How to tell if your apartment is rent stabilized:

In general, stabilized BUILDINGS

x Contain 6 or more units;

x Were built before 1974;

x Are not co-ops or condos;

In addition, for your APARTMENT to be stabilized it must

x Have had a rent of less than $2000, if you initially moved into the apartment in 1993 or later.

There are exceptions to these rules. The only way to know FOR SURE if your apartment is (or should be) rent stabilized is to call the NY State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR), the state agency which administers the rent laws:

Phone for DHCR is 718-739-6400
