Rent Guidelines Board's Preliminary vote for 2018

The Rent Guidelines Board's preliminary vote  last night set the outside limits for one- and two-year lease renewals in rent stabilized apartments:

For one-year lease renewals, the rent increases will be between 0.75 percent and 2.75 percent.
For two-year renewals, the rent increases will be between 1.75 percent and 3.75 percent.
The RGB will make its final decision on June 26, 2018.

Before that, Manhattan tenants can testify at an RGB public hearing on 

TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 2018  
4:00 - 8:00 PM 
at Cooper Union, 7 E. 7th St. at the corner of 3rd Ave. 

If you're not rent stabilized but your apartment has been out of stabilization for under 4 years,  please contact me or another member of the tenant association's executive committee for more information.  Perhaps you can get back into rent stabilization!
