Rent Guidelines Board votes to allow rent hikes on NYC rent-stabilized apartments

The Rent Guidelines Board voted Tuesday to allow for rent hikes for rent-stabilized apartments in New York City.

After weeks of public hearings, and facing a wave of protests from New Yorkers, the board voted 5-4 to allow for 1.5 percent increases for one-year lease renewals and a 2.5 percent increases for two-years a public meeting at Cooper Union's Great Hall in the East Village.

The rent increases can go into effect Oct. 1.

The board had been considering a .75 increase to 2.75 percent for one-year lease renewals, and an increase of between 1.75 and 3.75 percent for two-year lease renewals.

Some New Yorkers protested during the hearing, calling for a rent freeze, arguing that they cannot afford any more rent increases, saying they could push them out of their homes.
