DHCR Must Reconsider Whether Apartment Was Deregulated
LVT Number: #30237
Tenant complained of rent overcharge and improper apartment deregulation. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $6,352, including interest. Landlord and tenant both appealed, and the DHCR reopened the case. The DHCR found that it was unclear whether tenant's apartment was subject to rent stabilization. With its PAR, landlord had submitted a non-stabilized lease for the period between 10/17/07 and 10/16/08 at a rent of $2,100 per month. Landlord claimed that this was a properly deregulated lease entered into after a prior rent-controlled tenant moved out.
