$32 Late Fee Is Reasonable
LVT Number: 16756
Tenant complained of a rent overcharge. She claimed that landlord improperly charged her $832 per month and that the legal rent was $800. The DRA ruled for tenant, and landlord appealed. Tenant's lease stated that the legal rent was $832 but that if tenant paid rent before the 15th day of the month she would be charged a preferential rent of $800. The DHCR ruled for landlord. The $32 late fee charged by landlord was reasonable.
