Rent-Stabilized Apartment Was Lawfully Deregulated Before June 14, 2019
LVT Number: #30387
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's apartment in 2016. The DRA ruled for landlord because the NY State Dept. of Taxation and Finance (DTF) verified that tenant's annual household income for 2014 and 2015 was over $200,000. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that co-tenant had moved out in November 2014 and that therefore his annual income shouldn't have been included for 2014 and 2015 review. Based on sole tenant's income, there would be no deregulation.
