In Reply to: Can a building have both rent-stabilized aprtmts and non-rent-stab. aprtmnts? posted by Dorrie on May 12, 1999 at 18:46:08:

: When I signed the lease of my current apartment a year and a half ago, an attached rider to the lease said it was "NOT A RENT-STABILIZED APARTMENT." Since I moved in (and had my rent raised 8% the next year), I have met three other tenants in the building who told me their apartments were rent-stabilized, and were shocked at the amount I am paying.

: Is this legal? If not, where do I go to find more information? If it is legal, can the landlord raise my rent 8% next year, too?


Yes: six ways to Sunday!!!

Assuming you are all renting from the same landlord & the building is not a coop or condo:

Read about overcharges & luxury decontrol in the msg archives & on

Call or go to DHCR, get the rental history for your apt.

Then you'll know whether you're shockingly high rent is legal or not and what to do about it...
