Actually, the landlord is entitled to monthly increases of (a) 1/40 of the cost of improvements and (b) a vacancy increase, but not a renewal increase of 4% for a one-year lease or 6% for a two-year lease.
The vacancy increase would be a minimum of 18% for a one-year lease or 20% for a two-year lease. The vacancy increase could be higher if the apartment hadn't received a vacancy increase for eight years or more, and/or if the previous stabilized rent had been very low.
