In Reply to: Rent Increase Legal? - different posted by L Leonard on May 06, 1998 at 11:41:42:
If the apartment is stabilized, the DHRC can give you a printout of the apartment's rent history. They can also tell you what the allowable increases are. Historically, the allowed increases have been in the 4-7% range for a 2 year renewal, so your 22% sounds fishy.
If the apartment is not stabilized or controlled, the landlord can charge whatever they want.
: Unable to locate original lease as yet, although latest offer for renewal on apartment which tenant has occupied since 1994 was 22% over current rent. Are there legal maximums on rent increases a landlord can charge current tenants? It is a 9 story, approx. 35 unit building, Park So. and 18th St.
