Landlord Offered Tenant Renewal Lease
LVT Number: 16926
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) Tenant complained that landlord didn't properly renew her rent-stabilized lease. The DRA ruled against tenant. Tenant appealed, claiming that the new rent amount stated in the renewal lease offered by landlord was more than the legal rent. She said that landlord hadn't complied with a prior DHCR order setting the maximum rent. The DHCR ruled against tenant. Landlord had sent tenant a timely lease renewal offer. If tenant believed the rent charged under the renewal lease was greater than the legal regulated rent, she must file a rent overcharge complaint.
