30% rental increase

Posted by Jason on June 03, 1996 at 10:31:31:

I have lived in my current apartment for 5 years. In Sept 1991 I signed
a two-year lease. I then renewed for one-year with no increase in rent.
I ten renewed for two-years with only a $50 increase (4.54% increase).
Now I am xoming up for reemwal again and the building owner proposed a
30% increase. It not a co-op and is a 17 floor building. The Rent Guideline
Board has identifed the building as rent stabilized although after reviewing
my lease from 1991, the rent stabilization section has been crossed out with
a note saying "This is not a rent stabilized apartment". What should be my
next step? Can I offocially document the stability status of my apartment?
Should I include this in my counter offer while addressing potential over
payment over the past five years (where can I receive legal notice of the
rental history?)

Thank you for your assistance.
