Landlord Waited Until PARs Decided Before Collecting MCI Rent Hikes
LVT Number: #27995
Rent-stabilized tenants complained of rent overcharge. They claimed that landlord required signatures on 2014 and 2015 renewal leases that contained improper rents, including two MCI rent hikes that weren't collectible. They said that landlord waived its right to collect the 2010 and 2011 MCI increase by waiting until 2014 to charge them. The DRA ruled against tenants, who appealed and lost. The DRA found that tenants filed a specific rent overcharge complaint concerning the MCI increases.
