Rider on Lease Renewal???

Posted by Grace Testani on March 09, 1997 at 13:01:16:

Dear NY Tenants:

I'm not sure if you are thee right people to ask (if you are not, please direct me to the right agency-thanks).

My lease is up for renewal on April 30th. I have lived here since 1980. We (the tenants) have just recv'ed an MCI rent increase attached to the rent (in Jan for Nov & Dec and Jan).

When the LL sent the lease, he included a rider which says:

"The following rider should be attached to and made part of any lease executed for vacancy or renewal.
Rider attached to and forming part of the lease dated 12/12/96 between ______ (and this is left blank) agents for the landlord, and _______ (my last name here) for apt # ___ (my apt # here) located in the building at ___ (address here).

DOCKET NUMBER: New Application

This is to inform the tenant that an application for a rent increase based on an application for a Major Capital Improvement or Hardship Adjustment is pending before the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR). The tenant is bound by an Order of DHCR for a rent increase based on this pending applications."

It is not signed by anyone nor is it dated -- it just says the landlord's company name .

MY QUESTION: Is this legal to add such a general rider? And Not indicate which docket number we're talking about? Specially since I just got a rent increase because of an MCI award to the landlord?

How should I handle this?

Thanks for your help.
