Amendments to RSL in June 2019 Didn't Change Result of Overcharge Claim Denied in May 2019
LVT Number: #30334
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. Tenant claimed that there was a fraudulent scheme to deregulate the apartment and rent overcharge and asked the court to dismiss the case. The court ruled against tenant in May 2019 and granted landlord's request to dismiss tenant's claims. Tenant later renewed his claim based on changes to the rent stabilization law enacted by the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA) on June 14, 2019.
