Overcharge Lookback Period Limited to Four Years
LVT Number: #30968
Tenant complained of improper apartment deregulation and rent overcharge. She claimed that landlord improperly claimed excessive costs for individual apartment improvements (IAIs) in its Notice of Deregulation when she moved in. The DRA ruled for tenant in 2016, found tenant was rent stabilized, and directed landlord to refund $30,387, including triple damages. The DRA's decision was based on landlord's failure to prove that tenant's rent was a preferential rent.
