Does a landlord have the obligation to paint a rent controlled apartment. The tenant has no lease, apartment has been in family since the early 60's.

the tenant has no lease? in a rent controlled apartment?


anyway, if it is rent controlled and most probably the rent is way below market rate, don't be so greedy, just buy the paint and paint the damn apartment yourself and stop trying to squeeze everything out of the LL.

Most do not.

Generally, rent controlled tenants have only one old, original lease or no lease.


It is different for Rent STABILIZED apartments, nightcrawler...they almost always have leases and lease renewals with few exceptions.

(I lived in a rent controlled apartment in the Village...there was NO lease, not even an original.)

This is in NYC. I also had a rent controlled apartment in Jersey City with a lease renewal every year. So every jusidiction handles it differently.



To the OP...YES, a landlord of a rent controlled apartment must paint at least every three years if the tenant asks for it with NO charge to the tenant .

"apartment has been in family since the early 60's."

That means you're paying a TINY fraction of the market rent. And you've kept that apartment off the market, unavailable to apartment-seekers, for 50 years! Well, you've certainly made your contribution to the low NYC vacancy rate and high market rents.

PAINT IT YOURSELF, SPONGER!!

I think you are right about the RC tenants not having leases, I cant recall seeing our tenants having one because they have been in the building since the day the first brick was layed.


We had RS and RC tenants in our building that my Company owns, RC tenants get raised also, but there is a formula you have to do in order to caculate the amount of the increase.

Rs goes by RSA guidelines.

we have 2 RC tenants paying around 4 ish for a 2 bedroom.
