LVT Number: #30020
Apartment occupant complained to the DHCR of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled against occupant, finding that the all rent increases were lawful after the base rent date. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that the occupant lived in the apartment illegally and had no standing to file a rent overcharge claim.
