Apartment Deregulated Before June 14, 2019, Not Reregulated by HSTPA
LVT Number: #30544
Landlord sued to evict unregulated tenant. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case without trial. Landlord appealed and won. Before moving out, prior tenant had a one-year lease from August 2013 through August 2014 at a monthly rent of $2,330.55. When an 18.25 percent vacancy increase was added, the legal rent charged to tenant was above the $2,500 high-rent vacancy deregulation threshold in effect at that time. Contrary to tenant's argument, the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (HSTPA) didn't reregulate tenant's deregulated apartment.
