Building Exempt from Rent Stabilization Due to Substantial Rehab
LVT Number: #30107
Tenant asked the DHCR to determine her apartment's regulatory status. She claimed that she was rent stabilized. Landlord claimed that it bought the building in 1989 and then performed a gut rehabilitation of the building. Therefore, landlord argued, the building was exempt from rent stabilization. The DRA issued an interim order in 2017 and stated that tenant must be considered rent stabilized until landlord filed an RS-3 Form with the DHCR seeking a ruling on the building's status, and obtained a determination of deregulation. Landlord appealed.
