DHCR Must Decide If Repeal of Deregulation Law Applied to Tenant's Case
LVT Number: #30413
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment after the building's J-51 tax benefits ended. Tenants argued that the building became rent stabilized solely as a result of its participation in the J-51 tax program, so the apartment wasn't subject to high-rent/high-income deregulation when J-51 benefits expired. The DRA ruled for tenants and dismissed landlord's application.
