The only increase in security deposit that is allowed for a rent stabilized apartment is the same 4% increase (for a one-year lease) or 6% increase (for a two-year lease) by which the rent is increased under the current order of the Rent Guidelines Board.

Being late once or twice in paying your rent is not grounds for the landlord to refuse to renew your lease.
