A woman has revealed that the rent for her apartment in New York City has risen from $2,100 to $4,175, an increase of almost 100% after just two years.

Kelsey Barberio, 27, shared her shock on TikTok earlier this month, explaining that she got a ‘really good price’ for the apartment when she signed a two-year lease amid the pandemic of COVID-19.

‘Today I received my rent increase rate for my building. Don’t forget that I knew I wasn’t going to stay. However, oh my God,’ she said at the start of the video.

“I paid $2,100 and they want to raise it to $4,175. It’s just under 100%, which under normal circumstances is illegal. I guess it’s not just because of COVID.

Many New Yorkers fled the city during the pandemic and rental prices plummeted as desperate landlords tried to lure willing tenants into their homes with special offers.

Property management companies have offered deep discounts or sweeteners, including several months of free rent, to entice tenants to sign new leases.

There is no limit to the rent increase that can be charged at the end of a lease if an apartment is not stabilized, according to the NYC Rent Guidelines Board.

However, the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA) requires landlords to provide tenants with written notice if they intend to increase rent by at least 5%. Tenants with a lease of at least two years must obtain 90 days’ notice.

Barberio admitted she was a little surprised that the company was almost doubling her rent given that her accommodation had a “cockroach infestation” and “very serious chronic mold issues” which were negatively impacting her health.

“They’re very aware of that, so like the idea of ​​doubling the rent during all of this?” Come on, she said. “Apart from that, the roof has been closed for a year. There’s scaffolding all over the building [and] countless other problems.

“Honestly, I can’t even get to them all because it’s boring. [I am] very grateful to be moving in with my boyfriend and not having to pay $4,200 a month for this place,” she concluded.

“This place is two bedrooms and two bathrooms and I lived here before the building I live in now,” she explained. “In an ideal world, we’ll end up having a two-bedroom, but we have to see if that makes sense financially because it’s very expensive.”

“This place is over our budget. We’ve already had to negotiate down a bit, and it’s still sky high. Nothing’s going to be perfect, but I’m curious to know what you guys think, if it’s worth it’ ‘, she asked viewers.
