Asked by Florence, Brooklyn, NY • Sun Oct 5, 2008
I am renting an apartment in Brooklyn, NY for which a one year lease was signed a few years ago but not renewed. A few months ago, my landlord slipped a note under my door that 2 weeks later the rent would increase of $250. I called the landlord to discuss, left messages but was never called back. Since then, the landlord send me every month invoices of the 'increased' rent. I kept on paying the initial rent as no agreement was made.
Last week a new notice was slipped under my door notifying me that the last rent I paid for August for used to cover my 'debt' and that I still owed that month. The landlord can not prove i received his correspondance, no official mailing was send. Can my landlord legally claim this money?
