In Reply to: Limit to which LL can raise rent posted by SSB on April 12, 2001 at 12:59:17:
: I live in a rent stabilized, mid-town studio (no kitchen.) The landlord wants me out because he can rent this unit for much more than I pay. I still have 1 3/4 years lease. To what limit can he raise the rent if I vacate, either voluntarily or through eviction?
If you do not have a stove, fridge, and kitchen sink, you live in an SRO: Single Room Occupancy. There is no 18-20% vacancy allowance on SRO's and he can't even get the 4% 'renewal' increase unless at least 70% of the units are rented to permanent tenants.
ps: a studio contains both a bathroom and the 3 kitchen appliances; it may be any size, even over 1000 sq feet: what is missing is a separate bedroom with its own door and window.
