Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA
I have known about Pa’lante since 2013 when I first moved to Harlem into one of the Lionel Hampton buildings. I came across some flyers advising tenants to request a rent history from DHCR to find out if the apartments were deregulated illegally. I did it but didn’t see anything that struck me as odd. Six months into my tenancy dealing with numerous apt issues, I was moved into another building with a two year lease. I requested a rent history and found some discrepancies. I heard Pa’lante was hosting seminars at DHCR in Harlem and I went to a few. They were so informative and with the guidance of an attorney, I filed a rent overcharge claim. I know it can take years to get this resolved and hopefully get the apt back to rent stabilized status but it’s so comforting to know that organizations like this exist to educate people about illegal deregulations. I wish them much success at their new location.
