Apartment Vacant on Base Rent Date
LVT Number: #24658
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a rent overcharge. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding no rent overcharge. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that the DRA failed to calculate the legal rent from the Aug. 16, 2007, based date and, instead, calculated from Oct. 1, 2007, which was the second month into the term of her vacancy lease. The DHCR noted that tenant's apartment was vacant on the base date.
