and how it may impact their properties. Assistance is provided on a variety of rental issues such as: which
apartments are subject to local rent control laws; what is the legal base rent; what rent increases the law permits;
capital improvement surcharges; hardship increases and annual registration requirements. Files on residential
properties are maintained for public inspection if owners and/or tenants have questions regarding a particular property.
