DHCR Mistakenly Ordered Landlord to Give Tenant a Renewal Lease
LVT Number: #27407
Tenant complained that landlord failed to offer her a rent-stabilized renewal lease. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to give tenant a renewal lease. Landlord appealed and won. Landlord had told the DRA that he sought the apartment for owner occupancy and had sent tenant a notice of lease nonrenewal and termination of tenancy. Tenant had also answered the DRA’s request for additional information and showed that landlord had started a court proceeding against her in housing court.
