Although Apartment Was Improperly Deregulated, There Was No Rent Overcharge
LVT Number: #30361
Tenants complained of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of their apartment. The DRA ruled that the apartment had been improperly deregulated but that there was no overcharge. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants claimed that there was fraudulent behavior by landlord in connection with its receipt of J-51 tax benefits, as well as willful overcharge resulting from collection of a free market rent.
