Landlord Properly Reregulated Apartment
LVT Number: #29876
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA found no overcharge and dismissed the complaint. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that landlord had improperly deregulated the apartment while the building received J-51 tax benefits. But tenant's base date renewal lease and all subsequent leases were rent stabilized, and apartment registrations for those years matched the lease records. Landlord had vacancy deregulated the apartment in 2007 when prior tenant moved out, and the new monthly rent exceeded $2,000.
