Just wondering...

Do New York City Rent Control Laws also apply to parking garage spaces for residents in a coop? In other words, if a coop increases the parking rental fee in its parking garage, does that increase also apply to those non-shareholder folks living in the coop under rent control and presently parking a car in the coop's garage?

No. Rent control does not apply. Not to the apartments, not to parking spaces. The cooperative owns the building....

The coop owns the building, but the sponsor still holds a few of the apartments, including 5 or 6 which house rent control tenants. A few of these rent control tenants park their cars in the garage. The rent will be going up in the garage. I'm sure that they will protest that rent control laws prohibit the coop from charging them the increase for their parking spaces.

Rent control is for living spaces, not for garage spaces. To own a car is a luxury.
