Landlord Claims Tenants Fraudulently Avoided Luxury Deregulation
LVT Number: #24564
From 2004 to 2008, landlord filed applications with the DHCR seeking luxury deregulation of tenants' rent-stabilized apartment. Landlord didn't file with the DHCR in 2009 or 2010, but instead sued tenants in court, claiming that for the years that the DHCR had denied landlord's applications, tenants had annual income that was greater than the $175,000 deregulation threshold. Landlord claimed that tenants, husband and wife, fraudulently underreported their income to avoid luxury deregulation. Tenants' monthly rent was $3,060.
