High Income/Rent Decontrol
Any tenant with a monthly rent of $2,733.75 (deregulation rent threshold) or more as of April 1 of this year (2018) and every year moving forward may be subject to Luxury Deregulation. Each year the deregulation rent threshold shall increase by the same percentage as a one (1) year renewal lease increase promulgated by each successive Rent Guideline Board Order. An apartment is deregulated when the monthly rent is above the threshold amount as of April 1 and the tenant(s) have earned a minimum of $200 for each of the prior two (2) years.
**Note: Any buildings that currently have J-51; 421-a or other tax benefits are not eligible to file at this time. Also, any tenant receiving SCRIE or DRIE is protected against Luxury Deregulation.
