LVT Number: #30299
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $26,955, including triple damages and interest and reflecting a prior refund of $18,177. The overcharge finding was based on landlord's failure to preserve a higher legal regulated rent in tenant's 2012 renewal lease.
