To find the maximum rent he should pay, a tenant may check in the following ways: He may consult his landlord's registration statement. Every tenant is "mailed a copy when the accom- odations are registered. If the tenant's copy has been misplaced or taken .by a previous ten-. ant he ma >' as k *° see the Jand " lord's copy. Heath pointed out the landlord must show his copy to each new tenant and get his signature attesting that he has seen the copy.
