DHCR Disallowed Some Claimed IAI Costs Based on Inspection

LVT Number: #29875

The DHCR's Tenant Protection Unit (TPU) audited individual apartment improvements (IAIs) to tenant's apartment, then disallowed IAI costs and directed landlord to reduce tenant's rent. Landlord objected to doing so, and TPU then filed a rent overcharge complaint with the DRA. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $57,418, including triple damages and interest. The DRA disallowed $6,550 of landlord's claimed $33,000 IAI costs.
