Yes my building is rent controlled...1 of the tenants has been here 40 years, and another for 30. I saw the post about the owner harassing tenants....so many of the posts were so rude and unhelpful I gave up looking for any useful info on it :( I will have to look at the lease as far as the laundry room goes

There was a recent thread about a new owner for a rent controlled building who was harassing tenants. Is your building rent controlled? Also - is the laundry amenity in your lease? That's going to be important.

Keep careful notes of everything that's going on - you'll need these if you proceed to court.

I rent an apartment in a building with a coin operated washer and dryer. The washer and dryer have been here the entire 3 years I have lived here. Today what they called a 30 day notice was put up on the door to the laundry room saying they will be closing the laundry room starting December 1st. Its more like a 20 day notice. Regardless of the notice, from what I understand if the owners choose to just decide to stop letting us use the laundry room it is considered a removal of a tenant amenity and they therefore must reduce our rent. I chose to live in this building in part because it has an onsite laundry room.

The building was recently bought by someone who has been harassing all of us, and has told us he wants us to move. We do not want to move nor do we have to by law. He is just closing the laundry room to be a jerk.

Does anyone know for sure if he does close the laundry room if he must reduce our rent because he is taking away an amenity we pay rent to have????
