Landlord Offered Proper Rent-Stabilized Lease to Former Loft Tenant

LVT Number: #26161

Under a Loft Board Order, tenant's building was no longer an Interim Multiple Dwelling (IMD) and became subject to rent stabilization. Tenant then complained to the DHCR that landlord offered her an improper lease. The DRA ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that the offered lease contained many invalid clauses that conflicted with the Multiple Dwelling Law and Loft Law. For example, the lease required tenant to comply with orders and regulations of insurance rating organizations, which wasn't required under rent stabilization.
