NYC rent increase

Posted by greg on August 16, 2001 at 15:04:54:

I'm in an apartment on the Upper West Side. It's in an older building with about 25 units in the building. Our rent is $4000 (5 people live there) - it's been occupied since 1995. The landlord in previous years raised the rent $100 a year. Last year he wanted $500 more and we negotiated to $250. Again this year he wants $500 more. How can we find out if we are a rent stabilized apartment? If we are how much can he legally raise the rent? If not, how much? Can he just kick us out if we don't agree to the $500 increase? Please help/advise - it'd be much appreciated.
