Landlord Entitled to Set New Rent After Base-Date Vacancy Occurring Before 2014
LVT Number: #30120
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $10,000, including interest. Landlord appealed and won. The apartment had been vacant on the base date four years before tenant filed her complaint. The DRA calculated the base date rent by adding successive two-year guideline increases to the prior rent-stabilized rent to come up with a base date rent.
