Pre-2014 Version of RSC Preferential Rent Provision Applied to Overcharge Claim
LVT Number: #29954
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent, finding that a preferential rent was tenant's legal rent because landlord failed to preserve a higher legal rent in tenant's lease. Landlord appealed and lost, then filed an Article 78 court petition arguing that the DHCR's decision was arbitrary and unreasonable.
