People also ask, are there still rent controlled apartments in NYC?
According to the New York City Rent Guidelines Board, there are about 1 million rent-stabilized apartments in NYC. Those landmark tenant protections will codify the state's rent regulations rules permanently, rather than have them sunset every few years.
Additionally, how does rent control work in New York City? In New York City, rent control is based on the Maximum Base Rent system. A maximum allowable rent is established for each unit. Every two years, the landlord may increase the rent up to 7.5% (as of 2012) until the Maximum Base Rent is reached. Owners must apply for the Maximum Base Rent system for the tenants.
