Confusion Over Uncollected RGBO Increase Caused Repeated Recalculation of Legal Rent
LVT Number: #31054
Landlord applied to the DHCR for determination of tenant's legal and preferential rents for the period between Feb. 1, 2014, and Jan. 31, 2015. The DRA found that the legal rent was $1,344 and the preferential rent was $914. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant then filed an Article 78 court appeal. The case was sent back to the DHCR for further consideration. The DHCR again ruled against tenant, who then filed another Article 78 appeal. The case was sent back again, and the DHCR ruled for tenant.
