Case Reopened for DHCR to Consider Pre-Base Date Proof of Preferential Rent
LVT Number: #28387
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge after landlord discontinued a preferential rent charged to tenant. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding that tenant's base date lease included a legal regulated rent of $1,804 and a preferential rent of $1,419, that individual apartment improvements (IAIs) performed more than four years before tenant filed complaint couldn't be examined, and that tenant's lease rider permitted discontinuation of the preferential rent.
