Four-Year Rule Applies to Overcharge Claims
LVT Number: #30828
Building tenants sued landlord, seeking a declaration that they were rent stabilized and were overcharged. In a prior appellate ruling, a court declared that the building was subject to rent stabilization as of April 12, 2011, when HUD's oversight of the property ceased. The court action then continued for the rent overcharge claims. Landlord asked the court to dismiss the overcharge claims as untimely.
