Landlord Proves Building Was Substantially Rehabbed in 1984

March 27, 2018
LVT Number: #28306

Landlord asked the DHCR for a determination that its building was exempt from rent stabilization because it had been substantially rehabilitated by prior landlord after Jan. 1, 1974. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and lost. Landlord showed that the building was vacant and substantially deteriorated in 1983 and that the rehab work took place between 1983 and 1984. The architect who supervised the project submitted a sworn statement that a gut rehabilitation took place and submitted various supporting DOB records.
