Thanks for all your responses, I am actually thinking of suing a couple of months before my lease is up since I know for a fact that the landlord is going to give me sh*t, and I still have over a year on my lease. One of my friends (a landlord) also told me that my landlord will be obligated to pay me 3 times the amount he overcharged me by, so if I wait a year, that makees it more money for me, so I will wait.
: I live in a rent stabilized apartment in NYC and I just received my request from the DHCR for my apartment registration info. When reading the info, I see that the person living in my apartment right before me was paying $900 and when I moved in, the rent jumped to $1700. I thought under rent stabilization, apartment rents are not supposed to jump that high. I understand that if there are capital improvements on the apartment, the rent can increase, but can it really increase that much? By $800 on a rent stabilized apartment?
: Additionally, there is no reason given on the rent registration papers (Under "reason for change") why the rent has jumped so much from the previous tenenat but I do see that the landlord gave reasons previous to that ("Vac/Lease", "Leas/RNL") for other increases in the rent for that apartment (dating back to 1982).
: If anyone has any info or insight, that would be most appreciated.
