Landlord Must Offer Rent-Stabilized Renewal Lease
LVT Number: #24910
Rent-stabilized tenant complained that landlord had failed to offer him a renewal lease. The DRA ruled for tenant and directed landlord to offer the renewal. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that it shouldn't have to offer the renewal until the DHCR decided a pending rent overcharge complaint filed by tenant before his lease nonrenewal complaint. But nothing in the Rent Stabilization Code excused landlord from offering the renewal lease during the requisite window period while an overcharge complaint was pending.
