DHCR Must Reconsider Whether Initial Rent Exceeded Fair Market Rent
LVT Number: #30005
Tenant filed a fair market rent appeal with the DHCR. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding that the apartment's monthly fair market rent was more than the $6,000 charged to tenant when she moved in. Tenant appealed, and the case was reopened. The comparable apartment used by the DRA to assess tenant's fair market rent was a regulated rent and not an unregulated rent as landlord had claimed.
