Landlord Waived Its Right to Collect Higher Rent Increase

LVT Number: #30441

Tenant complained of landlord's failure to offer a proper rent-stabilized renewal lease. The DRA ruled for tenant and found that a $195 rent overcharge resulted from the improper renewal lease given to tenant. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that the $890 monthly rent offered in the renewal lease was based on rent increases authorized by the Rent Guidelines Board in Order Nos. 40 and 41, which New York's highest court approved in Casado v. Markus in 2011.
