Instead of helping the tenant understand about Major Capital Improvements, how to respond, how to object, what qualifies, what the rules are, where to look, etc. you've berated him for even asking the question. That's not the purpose of this forum -- and somewhat explains why some feel this is a hostile place. If you can't contribute, then don't post. We'll leave it with a warning for now.
: No, its not like "buying a car on payments". You're renting - meaning that as a rent stabilized tenant you will always be subject to increases in rent and you will always have play by the landlord's rules. And guess what, landlords own buildings to make a profit. Don't like this, think you can do it better yourself? Then buy a townhouse, condo, coop or apartment buiding. Run it however you want, and report back to us how it goes.
