No Proof of Fraud to Warrant Extended Lookback Period

LVT Number: #30974

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge in 2017. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding no rent overcharge. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant argued that the DRA failed to investigate a rent increase in 2006-2007 when the rent more than doubled and landlord failed to show that any individual apartment improvements (IAIs) justified the rent increase. Tenant claimed that HSTPA required examination of the rent prior to September 2011 and of all available rent history needed to make a determination.
