It's another installment of Ask Curbed, the feature in which you both ask?and, in the comments, answer!?each other's questions. Got a question of your own? Send it along to

A potential buyer of a studio in Greenwich Village writes in with this question:

I found a studio in GV for $250,000... problem? It's rent stabilized. However, from what I understand of the law, owners can displace stabilized tenants for their own personal or family use. So, is this really an option or a legal and financial nightmare? Does it depend on the age of the renter? Home-buying decisions are usually personal, but, at the reader's request, have at it, armchair lawyers!
