Overcharge Refunds to Be Recalculated Based on Enactment of HSTPA
LVT Number: #30342
Tenants sued landlord, seeking a declaration that their apartments were rent stabilized. The court previously ruled for tenants on the question of liability for rent overcharges but found that document production was needed to determine the legal regulated rents. The court also ruled that the default formula found in Rent Stabilization Code Section 2526.1(g)(1) should be applied to calculate the rent overcharges.
