Are there rights that a rent-stabilized tenant can waive?

Postby sr77 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 6:29 pm

In the past I've come across the statement that a rent-stabilized tenant can't waive their rights.

How comprehensive is that?

E.g., would it mean that if such a tenant entered into an agreement with the landlord and failed to notice something in it that was unfavorable to them, or made some other goof, their error could be invalidated by the 'can't waive your rights' clause?

Or is the scope of what can't be waived limited, applying only to specific areas of LL/Tenant law but not others?
