Landlord Must Refund Overcharge to Complaining Tenant Where Co-Tenant Made No Claim

LVT Number: #30235

Tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $17,981, including triple damages. Landlord appealed and lost. Among other things, landlord argued that the complaining tenant was only one of two tenants in the apartment and that tenant therefore should only receive a proportionate overcharge award. Otherwise, tenant received a windfall at landlord's expense.
