: : : : 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 said 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.
: : Thank you for responding. Regarding issue #2 you were mis informed. The landlord has no records of my paying a security deposit when I moved in, and is now requesting an additional security deposit of $803.40 which is my current rent. I too, have no record of paying this security deposit.
