Building Was Part of Horizontal Multiple Dwelling
LVT Number: #30516
Tenant complained of rent overcharge. Landlord argued that tenant wasn't subject to rent stabilization, based on the DHCR's separate 1996 order finding that the building had four apartments and therefore wasn't rent stabilized. The DRA found no overcharge but ruled that the apartment was rent stabilized. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord pointed out that another DHCR order, issued in 2013 for another apartment in the building, found that tenant rent-stabilized because he had lived there since 1971 when the building was part of a larger apartment complex.
