Rent Guidelines Board:
Tenant Advocate Testimony
April 21, 2016 from 1-3 PM
David N. Dinkins Municipal Building
next to the Brooklyn Bridge
Landmarks Preservation Commission, Conference Room
New York, NY 10007
Every Spring, the NYC Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) has hearings with landlord and tenant testimony to determine whether and how much to increase rent stabilized rents when leases are renewed. Last year, the RGB froze the rents for those signing a 1-year lease renewal because for the previous 40 years, landlord increases had far exceeded inflation and actual costs. We need the RGB to freeze or even roll back the rents for 2-year lease renewals.
You can testify at future hearings and should. What can you say?
- Your name and where you live
- How a rent increase will affect you.
