Court Rules That DHCR Should Decide Overcharge Claim
LVT Number: #30068
Unregulated tenant sued landlord for rent overcharge and claimed improper deregulation of her apartment. Tenant moved into the apartment in May 2012 at a monthly rent of $3,900, and renewed her lease three times. The last rent-stabilized tenant moved out in 2008 with a last registered rent of $2,408.73. But the building was receiving J-51 tax benefits when tenant moved in, and landlord admitted that tenant was therefore rent stabilized.
