Space Is Subject to Rent Stabilization
LVT Number: 16371
Tenant complained of a rent overcharge. She claimed that landlord charged too much for her building's garage space. Landlord claimed that the garage space wasn't subject to rent stabilization. The DRA ruled for tenant. Landlord appealed and lost. The majority of spaces in the garage were for tenant use, the garage was located in the building complex, and it was owned by the building owner. So tenant's garage space was an ancillary service, subject to rent stabilization.
