Prior Tenant Never Filed Fair Market Rent Appeal

LVT Number: #30220

Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. In response, tenant claimed rent overcharge and improper deregulation of his apartment. The court granted landlord's request to dismiss tenant's claims. The apartment was rent controlled until May 2001. Prior landlord and the next tenant then signed an unregulated lease dated May 24, 2001, at a monthly rent of $3,000. Landlord also mailed to that tenant an initial apartment registration form (RR-1) and filed an Owner's Report of Vacancy Decontrol (RR-42V) with the DHCR.
