Anyone have any opinions on the Rent Stabilization Association? Been around for a while, but I feel they are pretty much ineffectual. I would love to hear what people have to say about them.

Ineffectual in what way? What do you wish they should accomplish?

The minimum for destabilization of rent stabilized apartments is $2500 up from $2000. If someone or two roommates can pay more than $1600, why should the gov't help you? Water has been getting more expensive, taxes are going up, fuel is not getting cheaper, just buying super supplies is costing more. Stabilization increases just are not keeping up as much as my company would like.
Are these guys even worth paying attention to? I want to know what others think about them. Do you find them useful? In what ways have you utilized them? What have they to offer?

I agree with you 100%. This is why rent Stabilization needs to be reformed or phased out gradually. Increase the deregulation threshold from $2000 to $2500 keeps RS around longer. And you can thank our corrupt democrat polictians for passing and supporting Rent Stabilization. Vote republican next election as republicans actually get it and hate Rent Stabilization.

I'm a rent stabilized tenant paying below market rate (not that much below).

Bearing that in mind, I can't really figure out in what way it makes sense. I don't get to pull up to the gas station and tell the owner, "Hey man, I know gas is $3.60 a gallon and all now and you got your own bills to pay and whatnot, but back when I started driving in the 90's, gas was 90 cents a gallon so I think that's what I'll pay now! Thanks brah!"

Didn't the income limit go up recently as well to $200,000 or so? I make half that don't need rent stabilization; I can't imagine why someone hitting that would.

Everyone's costs are going up. Hardly any product or service costs today what it did 30 years ago, why should rent be any different?

Well rent stabilization is still around, so I'd say they're being at least somewhat effective.

You do know the RSA is a landlord association that lobbies against unfair Rent Stabilization laws right?

I know that is what they do. I was wondering if they do anything else, and how good they are at what they do. I would like to know more about them. Give me your unedited, emotionally charged opinions about them.

I haven't heard anything bad about them. They represent rent stabilized landlords and fight to reform the rent stabilization laws that are unfair to landlords and tenant friendly.

Unedited opinion?

They are a LANDLORD organization, representing LANDLORDS in setting maximimum allowable rents.
'Nuff said?
