: If it's rent stabilized, the landlord pays. Period. It doesn't matter what the lease or the super says. A "rider" requiring you to pay for heat or hot water or the landlord's children's bar mitzvah would not be legal and would be unenforceable.
Thanks - I'm actually heading over there this afternoon to meet the landlord - good to know in advance.
: I'm not sure what "promises" you're referring to, re the broker. Are you just referring to the heat-hot water stuff?
The broker issue was a more general question relating in this case to the heat issue, but based as well on previous experiences. We once had a broker sell us an apt based on promises of services - T1 line, washer dryer to be installed in the basement, mini-bodega to be put in on the ground floor selling staples (milk, bread, stamps, etc)-all of which we paid a high asking price for in a non-stabilized building, none of which came true.
When does the broker become liable to the information he or she uses to make a sale?
