Prior Preferential Rent Was Below Deregulation Threshold
LVT Number: #28389
Landlord sued to evict unregulated tenant after tenant's lease expired. Tenant claimed that he was rent stabilized and that the apartment was improperly deregulated. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. The prior tenant was rent stabilized and her last renewal lease in 2013 provided for a legal regulated rent of $2,028 and a preferential rent of $1,661. Tenant's first unregulated rent in 2014 was $1,750.
