Chinatown couple wants to pay rent like it s 1999: Lawsuit The last time their landlord registered the unit the rent was under $200

Orchard Street in Chinatown

Talk about partying like it is 1999. Kirill Nikonov and Kaimi Huang have stumbled across what could be a very sweet deal: a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan for just $199.15 a month. But, like so many things, it’s likely too good to be true.

Nikonov and Huang currently pay $1,550 a month for a rent-stabilized apartment in on Orchard Street in Chinatown. But according to a new lawsuit they filed against their landlord, their rent should be 87 percent lower.

The last time the landlord registered tenants for the rent-stabilized space was back in 1999 when the 上海千花网论坛

rent was $199.15 a month. That’s the rent they say they should be paying, according to a lawsuit they filed against their landlord uncovered by the New York Post.

“The most recent registered legal regulated rent 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛

is $199.15,” making the lease Nikonov and Huang signed in March “null and void,” according to the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court against Landlord John Chan of Orchard St. Realty.
