: My landlord is claiming that he has not record of my paying the security
when I moved into the building 6 years ago.

First issue -- get your bank statement, or request a statement &/or a
photocopy of the check from your bank.

: The building changed hands in the 1991 and the current owner saud he
has no record I renewed my lease in 1992 and 1994 with no mention of
unpaid security.

Second issue. If you have a copy of the lease renewals, then that proves it.
But if you're in NY and rent stabilized, if the owner failed to either
offer you a **valid and legal** lease renewal offer or failed to
execute it after you sent it back, then that is in your favor since
the rent cannot go up. Take this to court instead of DHCR.

: I have a case pending against my landlord for rent overchange and
he has been harrassing me do I have any recourse.

Document what he does. You can file harassment charges with DHCR. They
won't do anything, but it might cause him to stop. You should read the fact
sheets and other info on the web site.
