Luxury Deregulation Case Reopened
LVT Number: #24679
Landlord applied to the DHCR in 2011 for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment. The DRA ruled for landlord based on tenant's failure to respond to the notice of landlord's application. Tenant appealed, claiming that she did submit a timely response to the DRA after she first mistakenly sent the original answer form to landlord. Tenant also argued that her legal rent didn't exceed $2,500 per month. The DHCR ruled for tenant and reopened the case.
