Overcharge Resulted from Charging 1/40th IAI Rent Increase, Instead of 1/60th
LVT Number: #30183
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $1,430, including interest. Tenant appealed and lost. In response to the overcharge complaint, landlord submitted documentation to show it spent $29,000 on individual apartment improvements (IAIs). Tenant claimed that some of the work wasn't performed and submitted a sworn statement from a contractor to support this claim. Based on this dispute, the DRA sent an inspector to the apartment.
