Landlord's Request to Amend Rent Registration Was Premature
LVT Number: #30357
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to amend the 2016 annual rent registration for one apartment. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that it was premature to amend that registration in light of a pending DHCR rent overcharge complaint. Landord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that the requested amendments only reflected the tenants' names and rent listed under the June 1, 2015, lease because the 2016 registration originally filed was based on information contained in the 2015 registration and was mistaken. The DHCR found that the DRA properly denied landlord's request.
