: I just moved into an apt on the Upper West Side Sept 1. 1997. This is a rent stabalized apt (as indicated on my lease). If just found out that the tenant before me was paying $1500.00 and I am paying $1,940.00. Can the landlord raise the rent by that much for the next tenant? The only improvements made before I moved in was a new kitchen sink and repainted walls. The stove and refrigerator are old. Is there any way for me to find out what my landlord can legally charge for my rent stabalized apt? What city dept to I get in touch with to verify this for me?
Read the RGB orders on the web site. Generally it's 20% plus 1/40 the
costs of improvements plus 0.6% for each year the prior tenant was
in occupancy if it was 8 years or more.
