DC-2 Notice Was Defective
LVT Number: 15767
Rent-stabilized tenant filed a fair market rent appeal. Landlord claimed that it wasn't filed on time because landlord had sent prior tenant a DC-2 notice. The DHCR ruled for tenant, finding that the DC-2 notice was defective. The DHCR ordered landlord to refund $69,000 to tenant. Landlord appealed and lost. The DC-2 notice didn't state what the 1974 maximum rent was. This was required information on the form. So the DHCR's decision was reasonable.
