Landlord Proved Entitlement to MBR Increases
LVT Number: 8079
Landlord sued to evict rent-controlled tenant for nonpayment of rent. The court ruled for landlord, and tenant appealed. The appeals court again ruled for landlord. Landlord was entitled to rent increases under 1988/89 and 1990/91 MBR orders of eligibility from the DHCR and to fuel cost adjustments. Landlord had notified tenant in writing of the rent increases and, initially, a conservator appointed for tenant had paid them. Tenant couldn't now claim the increases were invalid. Landlord wasn't required to sent a separate formal notice of the rent increases to tenant's conservator.
