Okay, that makes sense now. The DHCR people were probably referring to the provision that allows an additional vacancy increase of 0.6% per year if the previous tenant was in the apartment 8 or more years.
Don't worry about J-51 then, unless you see something in the lease.

Also, didn't you say it was a one-year lease, not two? I think it should have been on top of 18%, not 20%.

: The DHCR counselor told me that in order for them to know if the increase in rent from 498 to 823 was leagal, they would have to see how long the tenant that paid $498 lived there. He put it this way the longer she lived there, the more rights does the LL have to raise the rent. He went saying including the vac. increase of 20% he is entitled to .6% increase.
