: You mention a lot of things, but the first thing is to determine your
: status. If it's a RC/RS building, then why are these two units "market
: rent" (did you mean deregulated?).

I am not clear on the differences between RC/RS. I only know that the other
apartments have long time residence within who are paying extraordinarily low

If it's not a coop, or not deregulated
: due to high rent or high income reasons, then it's possible you might
: indeed be regulated.

What does that mean? I know that many buildings may have units that are
rent controlled, but that doesn't mean they all are. That being the case,
I don't know if there is a limit to the non controlled rents. We aren't paying
out of line with the neigborhood. Probably a little less. However, in
comparison to what others are paying, they are receiving much better maintenance.

Many owners will tell tenants that units are not RS
: when they should be, and that can affect your rent and rights (and your
: right to a lease in your name).

How does one find out about a specific unit. I know on you board here,
the building isn't listed.

When on buys a building, even if for
: the reasons you stated, it comes along with various responsibilities.
: The repairs must be workmanlike; if not, then you should use various
: methods to press for a decent job.

What methods? We are not particularly keen in rearranging are free time for
this person to enter our apartment.. Mostly, because we are afraid he may
botch the job and make living conditions worse. Sort of what he did with the
shower. That is our primary concern!!!!

We have resigned ourselves to believe that anything we want done, we must
do ourselves. I was just wondering if there was any kind of recourse for us
in case this landlord should do any thing unsavory after we have invested a lot
of our time, labor and money into this.
