Apartment Became Exempt from Stabilization After J-51 Benefits Expired

LVT Number: #29746

In response to tenant's rent overcharge complaint, landlord asked the DHCR to rule on the apartment's regulatory status. Landlord claimed that the apartment had been deregulated due to high-rent vacancy. The DRA ruled for landlord and found that the apartment was exempt from rent stabilization. When the building's J-51 benefits expired in 2009, the legal regulated rent was above the $2,000 vacancy deregulation threshold in effect at that time.
