: My landlord has informed me that at the end of my current lease, June 30, 1998,
: that he will be increasing my rent. He has not indicated by how much. I live in
: a three family unit and I have no idea what dictates how much he can
: legally raise my rent since it is not a rent controlled or stablilized building. Do I
: have any rights or legal checks on my side in case he decides to increase it
: by an outrageous amount? He keeps talking about how much more the rents
: are on the block these days and I sense that he suggesting a large rent increase.

Since your talking about rent control/stabilization, I assume your in NYC. If your apartment is not controlled/stabilized, the landlord can charge any rent he wants in a new lease. He can also decline to renew your lease.
