: 28 Unit apartment building with a certificate of occupancy date of 1985. My Landlord just announced a $200/per month increase to renew my lease. Is that legal? My wife and I have been in the building for three years and have paid moderate increases every year... last year was $75/month.
It depends. Check your original lease and then call the DHCR. If you are renting a condo or co-op apartment, it is. Judging from the c of o date, you may be renting in a 421-a building that was rent stabilized, but after a certain date will be forever decontrolled.
