Apartment Already Deregulated When Tenant Moved In
LVT Number: #30913
Tenant sued landlord for rent overcharge in connection with two apartments in the same building. Tenant had lived in Apt. 6 from 2007 through April 2014, then moved into Apt. 4 under a written agreement with prior landlord. Landlord claimed that any overcharge claim for tenant's prior apartment had been resolved, and that tenant's current apartment had been properly deregulated for high-rent vacancy.
