oh yeah....I'm not rent stabilzed, living in "unsold shares" of a
: I read in a newspaper that landlords do not have the legal right to demand
: more than one month of rent paid in advance, at least in New York City.
: Is this true?
: My broker dangled the apartment in front of me, telling me I had gotten it,
: and then the day I needed to sign the lease, the "landlord" supposedly
: changed their mind, and wanted an extra 3 months rent, applied towards the
: last three months of the lease....Do they have the right to do this...and
: do I have a right to claim interest on the money (it was a sizeable amount

: advance rent provision...and now they spring it on me, just before signing
: this new lease.....any thoughts?
