Landlord Must Produce Rent History Documents
LVT Number: #28548
Tenant sued landlord, claiming rent overcharge, improper deregulation of a rent-stabilized apartment, and fraud. Landlord, in turn, claimed nonpayment of rent. Tenant asked the court to dismiss landlord's defenses, which landlord argued was a premature request. The court ruled against tenant. Landlord should be permitted to complete a response to pretrial questioning and document demand.
