DHCR Properly Ordered Inspection to Confirm Whether IAIs Were Done
LVT Number: #27749
The DHCR's Tenant Protection Unit (TPU) commenced an individual apartment improvement (IAI) audit for tenant's apartment and found that landlord didn't prove costs to support the $312 IAI rent increase. The TPU advised landlord in December 2015 to reduce tenant's rent and, when landlord didn't comply, referred the matter to the DRA to open a rent overcharge case. The DRA found that the base rent date was Dec. 31, 2011, four years before the TPU referred the case and asked landlord for rent history records.
