Landlord Didn't Acknowledge Rent-Regulated Tenancies on Demolition Permit Application

LVT Number: #30318

DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for making false statements on a demolition permit application. The application indicated that there were no occupied housing accommodations, and no units occupied by rent-controlled or rent-stabilized tenants. But this was contrary to the building's DHCR rent registration records for 2018. And landlord presented no additional information at a hearing held on the question. The ALJ fined landlord $5,000 for violating Admin. Code Section 28-211.1 for knowingly or negligently making a material false statement on a permit application.
