Send Tenant 2017 DHCR Form If Rent Is $2,700 or More
Rent-regulated apartments with a legal or maximum monthly rent that reaches or exceeds $2,700 may be petitioned for high-income rent deregulation. The Rent Act of 2015 amended the rent threshold for high-rent vacancy deregulation and high-income/high-rent deregulation by raising the threshold from $2,500 to $2,700. The DHCR recently updated the high-income rent deregulation forms to reflect the increased thresholds. Also, moving forward, the threshold will be adjusted annually by the one-year renewal lease guideline percentage increase issued the prior year by the Rent Guidelines Board.
