Rent-Stabilized Tenant Didn't Receive 421-a Lease Riders

LVT Number: #30391

Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2017. The DRA ruled against landlord because the apartment was rent regulated due to building's receipt of Real Property Tax Law Section 421-a tax benefits. Since the lease in effect when the benefits expired didn't contain the required notice under Rent Stabilization Law Section 26-504(c) that the apartment would be subject to deregulation when the tax benefits expired, the apartment remained rent stabilized until tenant moved out.
