Landlord Didn't Indicate Rent-Regulated Apartments on PW1 Application
LVT Number: #30083
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for making material false statements in a Plan/Work Application (PW1) filed with DOB. The PW1 indicated that the building contained: (a) no occupied housing units; and (b) no occupied units subject to rent control or rent stabilization during proposed alteration. The notice states that, based on DOB records, the building contained rent-regulated apartments. At a hearing, DOB stated that DHCR records showed that rent-stabilized apartments were registered in 2018. Landlord argued that DOB failed to present prima facie proof of the violation claim.
