No Fraud Found in Connection with Rent Registrations or IAIs
LVT Number: #28608
Tenant complained of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of his apartment. The DRA ruled for tenant, finding that the rent was frozen at $1,925 per month when tenant moved in on Nov. 1, 2013, based on landlord's failure to file rent registrations for 2012 and 2014. This overcharge wasn't willful. And, due to a rent reduction order issued in 2016, tenant's rent remained frozen. The DRA found no fraudulent scheme to deregulate the apartment.
