Landlord Didn't Prove Tenant Had Roommate Whose Income Was Relevant to Deregulation Determination
LVT Number: #30202
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2015. Landlord noted in its application that it contested the amount of the household income claimed by tenant since it believed that an additional occupant lived in the apartment as tenant's roommate. Landlord named that individual in its application. Tenant didn't report the roommate on her income certification form (ICF). The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost.
