DHCR releases new RTP-8 lease renewal form

Postby TenantNet » Thu Jul 22, 2021 11:52 pm

This is for rent stab units only.

As many know, this year the Rent Guidelines Board issued a bifurcated rent increase for all one-year leases commencing between 10/1/21 and 9/30/22.

For the first six months of a one-year renewal lease, there is no increase whatsoever. It's Zero percent. But the second 6 months will see an increase of 1.5%. See the official RGB order at https://rentguidelinesboard.cityofnewyo ... -order-53/

This new DHCR renewal lease form appears to conform to the RGB order. As with all RTP-8 forms, the tenant should read the reverse page very carefully. When landlords skip the deadline for offering a renewal lease, that's when they start playing games. Do NOT let them backdate a lease.
