Can you argue that the landlord is retaliating against you for asserting your legal rights. If so Real Property Law 223-b limits any increase the landlord could obtain.
If the proposed rent is a fair market rent, unless you can show some special irregularity like retaliation or discrimination, you are out of luck.
: I've rented from the same apartment for the past seven years with an annual rent increase of 6%. Then out of the blue, with a 30 day warning, my rent will increase 60%!!! I understand that I am neither rent contolled nor stabalized, but can the landlord increase a rent that dramatically after a seven yaer track record of 6%.
: Thanks for any advice one may have for me.
