If RS, chances are the owner hasn't properly registered with DHCR, giving
cause to a claim the rent can't go up, even with a lease. Sure, LLs can get
around that one quickly, but hope the LL isn't smart. I think, if there's
an actual overcharge, that late registration can't be cured w/o penalty.
: Under rent stabilization you are entitled to 120 days notice of your choice of a one or two year renewal lease. The rent increase is 2% or 4% depending on your choice. The rent increase does not go into effect until the renewal is effective, that is, at least 120 days from the offer to renew.
: Send the landlord a letter indicating that you want to renew your lease and request that the landlord send you a proper renewal offer as required by the Rent Stabilization Code. Continue paying your old rent until you are sent a proper renewal offer.
