Landlord Didn't Submit Rent History Records to DRA

LVT Number: #30063

Tenant complained of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of his apartment. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $37,400, including interest and triple damages. The DRA set the base date rent-stabilized rent by applying the default rent formula because landlord failed to submit a copy of the base date lease. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that the apartment was deregulated on the 2013 base date because the 2011 legal rent was $2,975. But landlord didn't submit to the DRA a base date lease or complete rent history at any time.
