Rent-Stabilized Tenant Was Overcharged for Garage Parking Space
LVT Number: #30301
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge in connection with his parking garage space. The DRA ruled for tenant, finding that landlord charged more than a rent guidelines increase to tenant for the parking space upon garage lease renewal after the base rent date. Landlord was ordered to refund $4,471, including triple damages. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that the parking space wasn't rent stabilized because tenant didn't start renting it until five years after he first rented his apartment. This didn't matter.
