Landlord Who Charged Less Than Legal Rent Waived Higher Rent

LVT Number: #31308

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant in 2018 and found a total overcharge of $3,450, including triple damages.

Tenant argued that no rent increase for individual apartment improvements (IAIs) was warranted.
