At no point. Move if you can't afford the rent.

only if you have a lease where you have to go thru a procedure for a rent reduction based on reduction in service. like if you have a bad appliance and the landlord won't repair or replace it you go thru the housing board who will approve a rent reduction based on a reduction in service. otherwise, no

Typical NY sense of entitlement.

I am 30 and will never be rude or condescending to someone at that state in life. So unlike some of the posts above, perhaps the original poster can give some sort of reasoning for why they expect a reduction in rent. I have never heard age as being a variable, unless it's some type of niche service community.

Perhaps you can try and convery to your landlord about the benefits of having someone who takes care of the property, stability in renewing the lease and not having to look for tenants or have the property go unrented.

easy answer , never. why should they? many seniors are worth more than the landlord.

I think a landlord lowered the rent in 1934. It was a Lower East Side walk-up that had just suffered a fire.

Unlike you, I did due diligence and read the other thread that OP posted on C-D about the exact same topic. In that thread OP talks about how he is "good in court" and threatens to put a lien on the landlord's house and all his assets. And never mentions any reason for doing so or making this threat. In fact he never gives a single negative detail about his landlord; it sounds like OP just making idle threats.

So, unlike you, I understand there are two sides to a story. If I'm rude or short with someone, it's for good reason.
