Yesterday, the ST-PCV Tenants Association announced a meeting for “Roberts” class tenants on May 29. Read the notice below:
Invitation to Tenants Facing Mid-Lease Increases
The recent, outrageous mid-lease increases have left many Roberts-class tenants wondering whether the calculations on their individual apartments are correct, particularly since they can’t obtain their unit’s rent history from the department of Homes and Community Renewal on short notice. Even if the rent history is known, the formula for the increase is complex. What if those calculations were incorrect? Is there anyway, at this point, to mount a challenge?
Because of the ever-increasing number of questions along these lines, the ST/PCV Tenants Association inviting tenants facing mid-lease increases to a workshop on May 29th at IS 104, between 20th and 21st Street, starting at 8:00 PM. This directly follows our members-only annual meeting.
The TA’s attorney, Tim Collins, of Collins Dobkin & Miller, will speak with Roberts tenants who want to explore their options and to answer mid-lease increase-related questions from TA members and non-members, alike. It will also give affected tenants an opportunity to meet others with the same challenges, and exchange contact information.
Seating in the IS 104 auditorium is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 7:45 PM.
