Rent Reduction Order Froze Rent at Preferential Rent
LVT Number: #30400
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant, finding a total overcharge of $357, which had already been refunded through a rent credit. Landlord appealed and lost. The DRA found that the base date legal regulated rent and collectible rent were both $1,523 but that when the legal rent later rose to $1,539, the collectible rent equaled the $1,400 rent paid under a preferential rent agreement. A prior rent freeze order reduced the collectible rent to $1,430. Landlord objected to the rent freeze.
