Landlord Showed No Proof of Amount of Rent Claimed Due
LVT Number: #24677
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent, claiming that tenant owed $700 for July 2010 and $800 for August 2010. Landlord claimed that tenant was rent stabilized. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that he was rent controlled, not rent stabilized. Tenant said that he had lived in the apartment since 1965. He also claimed that landlord demanded rent in excess of the legal rent. The court ruled for tenant. Landlord appealed and lost.
