Former Employee of Temporarily Exempt Unit Didn't Become Rent Stabilized
LVT Number: #31304
Tenant complained to the DHCR that landlord refused to offer him a rent-stabilized lease. Tenant had moved into the apartment in 1992 and never had a lease. His occupancy was conditioned on his employment with the landlord hospital. Landlord registered the apartment as temporarily exempt from rent stabilization. When tenant's employment terminated in April 2005, tenant remained in the apartment with landlord's consent and later claimed that he was entitled to a rent-stabilized lease. The DRA ruled for tenant.
