Is there anyway to fight a rent increase if the landlord forgets to renew on time?My landlord forgot to renew my lease and 2 months after it expired they increased my rent by 8% effective November 1 (meanwhile, I got this notice on the 2nd of November). I've been an excellent tenant, consistently paying on-time (even without having a lease). I've got good credit and could easily move, but moving is a pain and I like where I live. Any suggestions for what I could do to get my landlords to come back down to a more normal price?November 02 2011 - West Village00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
