Court Upholds DHCR's 1995 Deregulation Decision
LVT Number: #28589
Tenant sued landlord, claiming that her apartment had been improperly vacancy-deregulated while the building was receiving J-51 tax benefits. The court granted landlord's request to dismiss the case. Tenant moved into the apartment in December 2004 and received a deregulated lease from landlord. The building was receiving J-51 tax benefits at the time. However, the DHCR had issued an order in February 1995 determining that the apartment was deregulated due to the high-rent/high-income of a prior tenant.
