No Proof of Preferential Rent on Base Date

LVT Number: #29952

Tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $5,337, including triple damages. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord didn't submit copies of any leases or ledgers going back to the base rent date in response to tenant's complaint. The DRA therefore correctly relied on leases submitted by tenant. Landlord also claimed that the base rent was a preferential rent.
