No Triple Damages for Overcharge Resulting from Rent Reduction Orders
LVT Number: #29872
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $19,987, including interest. The DRA found that the overcharge resulted from a series of rent reduction orders that froze tenant's monthly rent at $607. Tenant received SCRIE benefits, so his portion of the reduced monthly rent was $199. The DRA directed landlord and tenant to contact the SCRIE program to determine what portion of the rent refund may be payable to SCRIE.
