No Fraud Found in Connection with IAIs

LVT Number: #29890

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge, claiming that individual apartment improvements (IAIs) done by landlord were merely repairs. She also claimed that landlord was charging her a preferential rent. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding no overcharge. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that the DRA should have examined pre-base date rent history due to landlord fraud. But the DHCR found that tenant didn't set forth sufficient proof of fraud that would warrant further rent history review.
