: : How do you tell from your lease if your
: apartment is truly rent stabilized? I don't
: see anything stated anywhere on apartment
: status when looking at a lease.

: The real question is if the apartment (not the building)
: is "subject" to the rent stabilization law. Although there are exceptions,
: the short answer is that if there are six or more units in the building,
: if the building was built prior to 1974 and it's not a coop, then chances
: are good that it's "subject" to stabilization. Some landlords deny this
: and even DHCR's registration list isn't determinative. If you suspect that the
: unit is stabilized, you can file with DHCR for a determination, but since DHCR
: is hostile to tenants, you can always appeal this (if you lose). But only take it
: up the ladder if you've done your homework and have a good case.

: The initial leases on a vacancy usually menntion stabilization status, but I
: don't think that's required. What is required is an informational
: rider explaining your rights. All renewal leases though are on forms
: prescribed by DHCR.

: The problem you most likely have is that you don't want to sign a lease
: unless you know the status -- and you aren't going to (can't) file for a status
: determination unless you have a lease. If you have an address, we have the list as of 1994
: of all NYC RS buildings. We could look it up, but these are only the ones that DHCR
: reports. Others that might be subject to the law that are not on the list you can
: only speculate. You might wish to see if you can talk to some of the tenants. They might know.

Could you check on the status of 10 West 74th street #7F? Thanks-
