Rent Guidelines Board considering a range of changes.

On May 2, 2016, the Rent Guidelines Board preliminarily voted to consider a range - from freezing rents for 1-year leases, to some increases.  It will then take testimony at several meetings (sign up to testify by calling the RGB at 212-669-7480) and hold its final vote for the year on June 27, 2016. 

Proposed Rent Stabilized Apartment Renewal Guidelines 

Together with such further adjustments as may be authorized by law, the annual adjustment for renewal leases for apartments shall be: 

For a one-year renewal lease commencing on or after October 1, 2016 and on or before September 30, 2017: 0% - 2% 

For a two-year renewal lease commencing on or after October 1, 2016 and on or before September 30, 2017: 0.5% - 3.5% 



Some 400 tenants came out to rally before the Preliminary Vote. 

There are a lot of articles and video and audio clips about the Rent Guidelines Board Meeting:
