Landlord Omitted Legal Regulated Rent from One Renewal Lease
LVT Number: #29716
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. Landlord claimed that tenant paid a preferential rent and that there was no overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and found a total overcharge of $5,400, including triple damages. Landlord appealed and won, in part. Although legal regulated rents and preferential rents were listed in most of tenant's leases, the higher legal regulated rent was omitted from one of tenant's renewal leases. Landlord also pointed out that it made some refund to tenant in order to avoid triple damages.
