In Reply to: IS A $1100 RENT INCREASE LEGAL??????? posted by Sierra on September 29, 1999 at 16:47:51:
the Landlord has a right to raise it $2000 a month if wants
to..........If you are not rent stabilized there is no limits......
thats the game....nyc we live here oh well.....nothing you can do
except pay it or move!
Time to look eslewhere I live in Queens 5 rooms 2nd floor
$950, 10 min to manhattan...and my car is parked outside too.
let the rich people have your apartment!
: I have been living in an non-stabilized apartment in Brooklyn for 6 years. My lease is up on October 31. My present rent is $1550. My landlord just gave me my new lease today raising my rent $1100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
: What I want to know is:
: 1) Is it legal for him to raise it that much in 1 year? I thought thr RGB guidelines stated a LL can only raise the rent 20% the first year and can keep on doing so until it is brought up to market value. AND
: 2) Doesn't the LL have to give you more than 1 month to sign a new lease OR make you aware of a rent increase.
: PLEASE, please advise me. What legal recourse do I have? How can I fight this? The expense of finding a new place and the cost of moving without being prepared has to be taken into account.
: Please help me. I am running out of time.
: Thank you.
