Apartment Was Eligible for Deregulation After J-51 Tax Benefits Ended

LVT Number: #30045

Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2017. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that tenant's lease didn't contain a J-51 rider while the building was receiving J-51 tax benefits. Since tenant had no notice of the automatic end of rent stabilization status following the end of J-51 benefits, landlord couldn't seek deregulation. Landlord appealed, and the case was reopened. Landlord showed that the apartment had been rent stabilized since 1969, prior to receipt of J-51 benefits at the building.
