"Raise rents as often as possible and as much as possible." This bit of gouging information is from your article (Feb. 8).
I live in an apartment complex where the rent was raised recently--with the aid and complicity of the so-called Rent Stabilization Board, an appointed body whose duty it is to keep rent raises under control. Your article all but spells it out--the rent board will help you out--(the landlords of course).
It may come as a surprise to your real estate editors that not all tenants can pay these increases. Some have restricted incomes.
