No Timely Fair Market Rent Appeal Filed to Challenge Decontrolled Rent

LVT Number: #30231

Tenant complained of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of his apartment. Tenant paid $2,300 per month when he moved into the apartment in 2013. The DRA ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. The apartment was initially registered as rent controlled in 1984. The rent-controlled tenant moved out in 2004. Landlord then negotiated a first rent of $2,000 per month with a prior tenant in September 2004. That tenant's rent exceeded the deregulation threshold in effect at the time and deregulated the apartment.
