Rent-Controlled Tenant in Co-op That Received J-51 Benefits Not Subject to Deregulation

LVT Number: #29749

In 2011, landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-controlled apartment. Tenant's monthly rent was $2,000 or more, and landlord sought verification that tenant's annual household income was over $175,000 in 2009 and 2010. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that the building was receiving J-51 tax benefits until June 20, 2013, and therefore was under J-51 during the relevant time period.
