Project-Based Section 8 Building Is Exempt from Rent Stabilization

LVT Number: #30625

Tenant complained to the DHCR that services had been reduced in his apartment. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed, and argued that the apartment and building weren't rent stabilized because they were subject to a HUD mortgage and HUD Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract. The DHCR opened a separate "AD" proceeding file to consider this issue. The DRA ruled against landlord based on landlord's failure to answer the DRA's requests for information, and reinstated the rent reduction order.
