In Reply to: month to month--rent increase posted by chris on January 21, 2001 at 23:38:55:
In New York City, the landlord has to give you thirty-days' written notice of a rent increase or to terminate your month-to-month tenancy.
The notice must coincide with your rental period and must be served in the same manner as a notice of petition and petition in housing court.
If you pay your rent on a calendar-month basis, the landlord could properly served a written notice by January 29, 2001, and a rent increase could become effective on March 1, 2001.
: I have lived in a two bedroom apt in a two family home in brooklyn for almost two years. We've paid rent on time and never bounced a check. This morning (1/21/01) my landlord told my wife that they are increasing the rent for february $200 a month-- from 900 to 1100. We never signed a lease, and have always been month to month. We objected to the increase and told them we would look for another apt or buy a home. In the mean time --what is the minimum amount of time they must notify us for an increase and do we have to pay it?
