LVT Number: #28121
Tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $75,000, including triple damages and interest. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord never responded to the DRA's request for rent history documentation. The DHCR could not accept rent history documentation, including proof of individual apartment improvements (IAIs) submitted for the first time with landlord's PAR.
