Misinformation on this board --beware!!!

Posted by tenantperson on August 05, 2001 at 18:06:54:

I know the people using this board are well-intentioned, but these are often legal issues and a good rule of thumb is, always double-check and don't take any answer at face value.

A while back I saw the following:

The person who gave the answer seemed totally convinced and seemed to know what he was talking about. This exchange of emails applied precisely to my situation -- I've had a preferential rent for some years and the landlord just stopped offering me a preferential rent. If I had listened to this person I would have accepted the landlord's action as valid.

In fact he or she was WRONG WRONG WRONG. After receiving differing opinions from others, I contested the landlord's attempt to hit me with a higher rent and he backed off.

A word to the wise, etc. Double-check EVERYTHING anyone tells you on this board, particularly on complex legal issues.
