I would take the apartment, it sounds like a good deal to me. If it is more
then the legal rent that DHCR sets you can find out after your in the apartment.Then you just
have to pay the legal rent that is registered with DHCR,then all you do
it you were overcharged is file a complaint and it will take
them 5 years to get to your complaint. But in the mean time, all you have to do
is pay the rent stabilized tenant paid plus the vacancy allowence (20 percent) till they (Dhcr) gets to hear
your case.Make sure you document everything though, have mail sent to
you overnight,so once your there for more then 30 days you can't get evicted.
But I think legally all you need is the lease, but still to be safe
,register to vote,get a voting card mail, phone bills document everything
so you can prove your there for at least 30 days then he has to take you
to court to evict you.
