Landlord Couldn't Support 49-Year Longevity Increase Claim
LVT Number: #30176
The DHCR's Tenant Protection Unit (TPU) commenced an individual apartment improvement (IAI) audit for tenant's apartment. The TPU audit found that landlord's claimed IAIs didn't support the 2014 legal registered rent. TPU referred the case to the DRA as a rent overcharge claim. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $8,926 to tenant, including triple damages.
