Landlord Proves It Sent Fully Executed Renewal Lease
LVT Number: #31591
Rent-stabilized tenant complained to the DHCR in 2018 that landlord failed to furnish him with a fully executed copy of a renewal lease that he had signed and returned to landlord. The DRA ruled against tenant and terminated the proceeding because tenant failed to submit additional information needed to process the case, requested by the DRA in early 2021. Tenant appealed and lost. In response to the DRA's request, landlord had submitted a copy of the fully executed renewal lease in question with an "unclaimed" certified mail receipt and envelope. The DRA had sent this information to tenant, who simply denied receipt.
