DHCR Set First Rent for Former Professional Unit Using Comparability Data

LVT Number: #30234

Tenant complained of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of her apartment. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $35,392, including interest. The DRA found that since the apartment had no rent history prior to tenant's occupancy and was vacant on the base date, the base date rent was $2,554. This was based on an average of comparable rents in the building on the base date plus an IAI rent increase plus a vacancy allowance.
