Landlord Fraudulently Deregulated J-51 Apartments
LVT Number: #28073
Two tenants sued their building's landlord, claiming that they were improperly given unregulated leases when they moved into the building in 1999 and 2008 respectively. The building received J-51 benefits between 1998 and 2010. Tenants also claimed fraud and rent overcharge under rent stabilization.
