Deregulation Applied to New Tenant Who Didn't Live in Apartment During Prior Tax Years
LVT Number: #29925
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2018, claiming that the legal rent was $2,733.75 or more. Tenant had admitted in the Income Certification Form (ICF) that her annual household income exceeded $200,000 in both 2016 and 2017. The DRA ruled for landlord and deregulated the apartment. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant argued that she moved into the apartment in March 2018 and didn't live there during 2016 and 2017. But that didn't matter.
