MBR Rent Hikes Denied Because Landlord Didn't Pay DHCR Fee
LVT Number: #30525
Landlord applied for 2018-19 maximum base rent (MBR) increases. After processing landlord's application, the DRA mailed MBR fee payment notices to landlord, but landlord didn't respond. So, the DRA issued an order denying landlord's 2018-19 MBR application based on landlord's failure to respond to the fee payment notices. Landlord then filed a challenge to the MBR order, saying that it had paid the fee in November 2017 via mail and that it hadn't been returned by the post office. The DRA denied landlord's challenge.
