MCR Properly Calculated
LVT Number: 16947
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) Rent-controlled tenant complained of a rent overcharge. He claimed that the MCR for 2002 was improperly calculated and that landlord overcharged him by collecting a 1996 MCI rent hike. The DRA ruled against tenant. Tenant appealed and lost. The tenant's MCR was calculated properly. And tenant never appealed the MCI rent hike that the DRA granted landlord in 1996. Landlord properly collected $7 per room for tenant's nine-room apartment based on the MCI rent hike.
