"It's a big problem. If you don't know your apartment is rent-stabilized, you won't know that your rent is supposed to be at a certain level, along with a host of other protections you could receive through rent stabilization [...] Landlords know if they sit it out long enough, [old tenants] will get frustrated. They can put new paint job in the apartment and charge $900 more.”
It's interesting how prevalent this seems to be. What can be done to provide better education for tenants?
Clock us in at "cautiously optimistic?"
