A preferential rent is any rent charged to a rent stabilized tenant that is lower than the legal rent. Under current laws if you are one of the 250,000 tenants with preferential rent your rent can be raised anywhere up to the legal rent next time you sign a lease, which for some means an increase of hundreds of dollars.

Una renta preferencial es renta cobrado a
un inquilino que vive en un apartamento de renta estabilizada que es más bajo que el alquiler legal. Según la ley corriente si es uno de los 250,000 inquilinos con renta preferencial, su renta puede ser levantado hasta la renta legal la próxima vez que firmes un contrato de renta y esto significa aumentos inesperados para miles de neoyorquinos.
