Rent Stabilization Association
Tenants and their supporters voiced their displeasure when the Rent Guidelines Board voted preliminarily for an increase of 0 to 2 percent for one year leases.
The laws governing the rent paid by more than 2 million New York City residents are due to expire June 15, and state lawmakers are preparing for what could be a bruising debate over whether to renew, strengthen or weaken them.
On Monday, the board voted to consider 0 to 3 percent increases on one-year leases on rent-regulated apartments.
Hundreds of New York City residents filled Cooper Union on Monday night to fight against rent increases for rent-stabilized apartments. But their wishes would go unfulfilled.
