Rent-Stabilized Apartment Was Vacancy Deregulated Before Tenants Moved In
LVT Number: #30295
Unregulated tenants complained that they were rent stabilized, that their apartment was improperly deregulated in 2011 due to landlord fraud, and that they had been overcharged. The DRA ruled against tenants, who appealed and lost. Landlord proved that the apartment was vacancy deregulated before tenants moved in. The prior rent-stabilized tenant moved out after 27 years at a rent of $625 per month. Landlord then spent $106,467 on individual apartment improvements (IAIs).
