Apartment Not Fully Furnished
LVT Number: 10863
Subtenant of rent-stabilized apartment complained that he was overcharged by tenant. The DRA ruled for subtenant, finding willful overcharge and assessing triple damages against tenant. Tenant appealed, claiming that he was entitled to a 10 percent surcharge for renting the apartment furnished. The DHCR ruled against tenant. Tenant admitted that the apartment was rented only partially furnished. Therefore tenant couldn't get the 10 percent surcharge.
