Apartment Occupant Had No Standing to Appeal Rent Administrator's Ruling
LVT Number: #30285
Landlord applied for a ruling from the DHCR that its building had been substantially rehabilitated and therefore was exempt from rent stabilization. The DRA ruled for landlord. One occupant claiming to be a tenant appealed and lost. Occupant claimed that landlord's proof of rehab work was insufficient. Landlord argued that occupant wasn't a tenant of Apartment 2F, as claimed, or of any other apartment in the building. She therefore had no standing to appeal the DRA's order that the building was exempt from rent stabilization.
