Thank you for understanding. I'm paying my rent. I'm not looking for a handout or a free ride. I just want to stay in a place that I can actually afford to pay for. Like you said they knew this was a rent controlled building and they took the gamble that they could harass us and push us out.

So are you the person that bought my building? I don't want to move I don't care how much money they offer me that was why I said $100,000 to show them that I ain't freaking moving. Where did I say it took so little effort to find this apartment? You're a real jerk. you must sit around on your computer all day seeing as how you've made over 1000 comments and posts on here. I said I looked in the area and my rent would almost double for the same amenities, size and kind of apartment that I have in a building with similar kinds of people. You're not offering any help here buddy. go away now bye-bye. I know what escrow is if I didn't I know how to ask Google.I don't want money in a bank account I want cash money and $100,000 of it. unreasonable? I don't care I'm not moving.
And when I said $25,500 ain't shit to me what I meant was doubling my rent is going to end up costing me a lot more over a few years then $22,500 is going to give me. An extra hundred dollars a month is $1200 a year. That extra expense would mean that I wouldn't get to go home to see my family twice a year like I do now. That's not a sacrifice I'm going to make, sugar.I asked for assistance on what I could do to get my landlord to cash my rent check and not try to hold onto it like I've heard landlords try to do for three months so that they can try to evict you and say that you haven't paid your rent. Nobody seems to be offering this help thanks anyway y'all.

I misspoke, Buildings that are not new that have five or more apartments are considered rent controlled. Here's another article that you can read for more information from nj.com

It's just a regular apartment that I found on craigslist 2 1/2 years ago. Rent controlled is not the same as section 8 housing. I live in a small building with only nine apartments. anything over I think it's six or seven in Jersey City and is not a brand new building is considered rent controlled. Basically it means that the city puts out a table that says how much the landlord is allowed to raise ones rent depending upon which month domeone moved in. So for example last year my rent went up .7% this year It can only go up about 2%. I lived downtown for over 10 years, and I always lived in small buildings. I learned my lesson when my last landlord downtown kept raising my rent about 20% every year and then finally raised it more than I could afford to pay. So I specifically looked for buildings that had seven or eight apartment so that it would fufill the rent controlled requirement. This link from the city will give you more information about what rent control means and it also includes the table of how much rent control buildings can have the rent raised per year http://www.jerseycitynj.gov/hedc.aspx?id=1182

do you think I'm stupid? You want him to pay me after I leave the property? I also asked for advice on what I can do about getting my landlord to respond and about making sure that he didn't try to pull some bullshit and not cash my rent checks and take me to court saying that I never paid my rent. Why should I leave? I'm a six minute bike ride from work a 20 minute walk to Journal Square path station. I love my neighbors and my neighborhood. Out of curiosity I looked into what something equivalent would cost in the same neighborhood and it would double my rent even though I've only been here for 2 1/2 years.

You talk like you're a Landlord or someone who buys Apts like what happened to mine and tries to push people out. This is my home, this is where I feel safe where I feel comfortable.

Not five minutes after meeting the new owner he said that he would maybe consider offering people a couple of months rent to move out. I told him I would move for $100,000 and six months to move. And I walked away. My rent is only 750 a month by the way for my own little studio with a washer dryer in the basement. 30 months rent is only roughly $22,500 that ain't shit

New owner/landlord isn't cashing rent checks
#7
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Hello. So my building was recently purchased and we have had some issues with the landlord. This month we started sending our rent checks to a new address in Brooklyn. I mailed my rent check two weeks early on purpose because the intention of the landlords is they put is to "gut renovate the building" and they said they were going to do what it took to get us out of here. It's a rent controlled building and those of us that live here do not want to move. Anyway, enough of the backstory it's now the 10th of the month and we never got a rent receipt from last months rent and they still have not cashed our checks. I called landlord and tenant relations today and a very nice woman that I spoke to said she had received calls from other people in my building about this issue and others. She then proceeded to tell me that I need to make sure that I always have the amount of rent in my bank account and suggested opening a separate account just to keep my rent in to make sure I do not accidentally spend it. She said that landlords have this thing where they don't cash rent checks for three months then they try to get you evicted saying that you never sent your rent checks in. I am just flabbergasted that some jerks will try to do this. How can they do that to an entire building? How can A landlord try and say that nobody in the building paid rent? The woman at landlord tenant relations told me that I need to relay this information to everyone in my building. I've spoken to at least three of the other tenants, and one of them suggested that we start sending our rent checks with The regular mail but sending it with tracking. My neighbor told me that it's cheaper than sending it certified mail and unlike certified mail no signature has to be given in order for the parcel to be delivered.
Is there any other advice that folks can offer? I know my rent check has only not been cashed for 10 days and not two months, but these new owners are really slimy and when I called the city to tell them who they were they laughed and said yeah these people do that all the time. And yes myself and the other two tenants that I know for sure Who haven't had their checks cashed either have called and texted the landlord and he is not responding at all.

Re: Light bulbs in a rental unit

And in the last few months 2 new tenants have moved in, and both times when the landlord was preparing those apartments for the new tenant I noticed that they had a big box of these ceiling fluorescent lights, so I just figured they replaced the bulbs and our apartments. I wasn't sure exactly so that's why am asking.

How is my question not staying on good terms with my landlord? that's why am asking the question in the first place if my landlord is not legally responsible to change the bulbs then I'll figure out a freaking way to do it myself.

my lease doesn't say anything it's just you know the standard one that you can print off the Internet.

Well did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, not have lunch yet, or haven't been laid in a while, which one is it asshol*?

Why the shitty angry response? I asked who is responsible for changing it. I didn't say I wouldn't do it I've just had the experience in the last 13 years in every place I've ever lived that when the lights in the ceiling, the long skinny bulbs burn out, my landlord has always taken care of it before, and that was in three different places with three different landlords.

didn't your mother ever teach you that if you don't have something nice to say you should just not say anything at all? I really don't get why you had to respond the way you did you must be a lazy fat ahole landlord who treats his tenants like crap.

By the way my toilet seat broke a few months back, and I went out and bought myself a new one and replaced it myself and then sent the landlord the receipt and they gladly reimbursed me for it, so crawl back in your self righteous judgment hole.

Light bulbs in a rental unit

A couple of the long skinny lightbulbs that go in the ceiling of my apartment have burned out. I texted my landlord and asked them to change them, and they said that they don't normally replace the lightbulbs. I've lived in Jersey City in three or four different apartments over the last 13 years, and anytime similar light bulbs burned out my landlords always changed them no problem. I'm trying to find out who is legaly responsible for changing these lightbulbs. I don't even have a ladder or a chair tall enough to change the bulbs. Thanks.

Wow you sound like a coldhearted cun*. Why don't you take your freaking coffee and go back to your nice warm house, car or office, and have a little empathy for those that have no place to go asshat. Lots of Starbucks around the country have started removing the chairs to discourage everyone, even people who have the money to pay for coffee and have a home to not sit and stay for so long.

Well this is terrible news. They are so much friendlier and have much better prices and turn around service than that crappy bike store downtown ever could. The jerks in the place downtown always have so much freaking attitude, oh I'm so cool. The folks at James Vincent were always nice you never felt like you were getting ripped off.

Re: High End Alternative to JC Hotels but NOT AIRBNB

I said I called a few of the corporate housing places in the high-rises, but they all want a one-month stay. high-rises are fine as long as they are purposefully made to be apartments for guests ie, hotel like. I don't want a place were someone else is living there part of the time. Do you have any specific contact information for these high-rises? I'm looking for something for 300 a night or less including all taxes and cleaning fees and so on. Otherwise my dad could just stay at one of the other hotels in downtown Jersey City on the waterfront for around 309 a night. Thanks.

I'm looking for a hotel feel place for my dad to stay next week for one night super close to Grove, NEWPORT or Exchange Place PATH stations. It must be corporate feeling and not an Airbnb place. He usually stays at the Hyatt but those fucks want $500+ and the Westin is $400 for Wednesday of next week. I called come corporate housing places in the super nice high rises on the waterfront, but they require a 1 month stay. Thank you.

Hey all. I have a bad knee at the moment and can't walk very far. I'm trying to figure out if it's less walking for me to go out the Vestry Street exit at the World Trade Center from the path train and walk to Fulton Street station above ground, or if I should walk through the new train station connection within the World Trade Center. I'm talking the J to the LES. Thanks.

corybraiterman ok. Are you in a rent controlled building? From what I have been told and understand, usually in a rent controled building in JC they are only allowed to raise your rent 3%.

The rent increase was neither explained nor justified. I know of no improvements that were made to my building or to my apartment. Doesn't mean they weren't made, I just don't know about them.

If the landlord is going to increase the rent more than 3% in a rent controlled building for improvements reasons do I have to be told that either verbally or in writing?

I just received a letter about the rent increase today, so no I haven't called the landlord tenant relations number yet. Thank you for that information and the link.

Rent Increase in Rent Controled Building
#30
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


In a rent controlled building (9 apartments, older building, owner does not live on premises) what percentage can the rent be raised? It's 3% correct? I received a letter saying my rent would go up, and the increase is 5%. How do I fight this if they are only legally able to raise it 3%? And the letter I received notifying me of the rent increase included the following weird sentence, " please note, as a long-term tenant, we will still consider your lease to be month to month per section 15 of the revised agreement." If they raise the rent don't I get a new lease? What is section 15 of the revised agreement? Do they mean the original lease that I have with my landlord?

Thanks for any help or advice.
