No Valid Excuse for Late PAR Filing
LVT Number: #27987
Rent-stabilized tenant filed a PAR of a decision in landlord's favor. The DHCR dismissed the PAR as untimely. The DRA's order notified tenant that a PAR must be filed within 35 days as a matter of law after the DRA's order was issued. Tenant's PAR was filed 50 days after the DRA order date. Tenant claimed that landlord had access to his mailbox and routinely discarded or withheld DHCR documents mailed to tenant.
