Landlord Didn't Properly Reduce Rent Upon Transfer to Electrical Exclusion

LVT Number: #30976

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge in 2012. He had lived in the apartment since 1976, and his initial monthly rent of $650 included a $100 charge for five air conditioners (at $20 each) installed by landlord. At that time, the building was electrical-inclusion and landlord paid tenant's electrical costs. By prior DHCR order issued in 2008, the building was changed to electrical exclusion with tenants paying their own electricity costs.
