Renters in New York City will be paying more after the Rent Guidelines Board approved a hike for rent-stabilized apartments.
The Rent Guidelines Board voted to increase rent by the highest increase in rent stabilized housing in 10 years. The board had a split 5-4 vote and considered many factors, including operating costs, inflation and small businesses struggling to maintain their properties.
The proposed hike is a 2% - 4% increase on one-year leases and a 4% - 6% increase on two-year leases. The board settled on a 3.25% increase on one-year leases and a 5% increase on two-year leases.
The rent increases are set to begin as early as Oct. 1 for rent-controlled housing.
