: The section of the regulations is 2520.11(e), which seems to apply to
: buildings that are in such poor shape that renovation creates more units.

That section reads:

(e) housing accommodations in buildings completed or buildings
substantially rehabilitated as family units on or after
January 1, 1974, except such buildings which are made
subject to this Code by provision of the RSL or any other

: My building has been renovated, but I think that was in 1988. I don't know
: what the building's condition was before renovations.

"substantial rehab" is a complex subject and there are items on this
in DHCR's advisory opinions, policy statements and operational bulletins. I
would peruse those for info on how they determine these things, i.e., what
constitutes and "substantial rehab" and how the process works. In some
cases, the rehabs are so complete that essentially a new unit was created.
You will need to uncover all the facts about what was done, when it was
done and how you and previous tenants rent reg status were treated by the
landlord and by DHCR.
