Landlord Submitted Incomplete Substantial Rehab Application
LVT Number: 8928
After completing a substantial rehabilitation project, landlord asked the DHCR to remove its building from rent stabilization. The DRA asked landlord to submit a complete rent roll, including the name of each current tenant. Landlord claimed that the building was vacant when the rehab work was done, and that it didn't have to submit a list of tenants' names. Instead, landlord sent the DRA a list of the apartments on each floor, and the number of rooms in each apartment. The DRA denied landlord's application. Landlord appealed, and the DHCR denied landlord's application. Landlord didn't submit the documents and evidence requested by the DRA, including a certificate of occupancy for the building in connection with the work done, an approved Altered Building Application issued by the DOB, and a complete rent roll for the building. The DHCR requires a complete rent roll so that it may notify all affected tenants that landlord is applying to remove their apartments from rent stabilization coverage. Since landlord didn't submit a complete rent roll, tenants didn't get proper notice.
