DHCR Can't Retroactively Apply Amended RSC Provision on Setting Rent After Temporary Exemption
LVT Number: #30121
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $22,365, including interest. Landlord appealed, and the DHCR denied landlord's PAR. Landlord then filed an Article 78 court appeal, claiming that the DHCR's decision was arbitrary and unreasonable.
