If you have a stabilized lease, he has to renew you. It part of stabilization. So you don't have to worry about that. I would definately complain to buildings about the rats and heat. If the LL gets unresolved violations, you could probably use that as basis to get a rent reduction.
: I live in Manhattan on the upperwest side in a tenament walkup second floor above the rat infested trash area in an eighteen unit building. I have a writen two year rent stabilized lease that will end next summer. I've been here five years. The building was built sometime in the late 1800's. I have rats in my apartment and hot water is a problem, four to five times a month. The super is not around at all during the day. Heat is rare during the winter season. There are soo many problems in this building that I don't know where to begin. I want to file a complaint against the landlord (slumlord) but I'm afraid he will NOT renew my lease next summer if I do. What can I do?
