(Decision submitted by Karen Schwartz-Sidrane, Esq. of the Rockville Centre law firm of Sidrane & Schwartz-Sidrane, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.)
Tenant complained of rent overcharge and claimed that her apartment had been wrongfully deregulated. She said that the apartment was owner-occupied before she moved in. The DRA ruled for tenant, finding that the total overcharge with interest was $8,500 and that the overcharge wasn't willful.
