Major Capital Improvement Application

All rent stabilized tenants should have received Stellar's application for the outrageous Major Capital Improvement (MCI) increase in our rents.  Our lawyer also received this notice, and we will fight the MCI together.  For now, just hold onto the application that was sent to you.  

It is somewhat amazing that an owner who has not complied with existing DHCR rent-reduction orders can ask DHCR for more money.

Tenant action for last 10 weeks of State Senate

Please join your neighbors on a bus to ALBANY on 

Tuesday, April 27

 7:00 A.M.  - leaving from Broadway at 98th Street.

The NYS Assembly plans to pass tenant legislation that day, and we need those bills passed.

Even more, we need to focus on the Mitchell-Lama bill that will end "unique or peculiar" increases - and probably end our lawsuit.
