Rent increase mid-lease??

Posted by David Zarnitzky on January 14, 2001 at 17:12:26:

This may seem like a dumb question, and the answer seems very obvious - but I thought I'd double check.

A friend of mine is renting an apartment in Manhatten. Has been there since September.

He has a lease.

Nothing has changed (such as # of people living there, improvements to the building, etc..)

I do not believe his apartment is rent controled or rent stabalized.

His landlord came to him yesterday and told him that she is raising his rent 7% .. starting NOW ... in the middle of the lease.

I am going to double check - but I do not believe there is any clause in the lease that says she can do so.

Call me crazy - but there is NO way she can do this? Am I right?
