: The rent regulated search on this site indicates my building is subject to rent stabilization. Is this reliable?

No, it is not.

: Does this necessarily mean my apartment (one of 13 in the building) is stabilized. How can I find out for sure?

No, it does not. Call or go to DHCR, ask for a Rent Hisory. Bring you lease and a current utility bill, both with yur name on them.

: Bottom line is that our rent was raised 16.5% last year which is excessive by any standard but particularly so in light of RGB mandated 2% increase.

: Other potentially relevant info:
: 3 bedroom apt with 5 people living there (only 3 on lease).
: I have lived there 3 years but on the lease for two as we effectively signed a new lease after one year with different names.

None of that is relevant to Rent Stab status. Could it be 'luxury de-regulated': was your first lease >$2000/mo? Or: did you rent a coop?

: Thanks in advance.

Your welcome.
