Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Hi Susan: This sounds like a rent stabilized or rent controlled apartment. Is it so?
Hi Susan: In some cities or town, there is a code or ordinance where a landlord can only raise rent a certain amount each year. Since you have lived in a place for 21 years, it sounded like you lived in a rent controlled or rent stabilized apartment. In other words, they cannot raise your rent any amount they would want to do. Is your apartment market rent?
We can continue here. That is fine.
