Tenant in 421-a Building Not Subject to Deregulation

LVT Number: #30386

Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2016. Landlord advised the DHCR that the building was constructed after Jan. 1, 1974, and was rent stabilized because the building received 421-a tax benefits. But the 421-a benefits expired on June 30, 2014. The DRA asked landlord to submit copies of tenant's vacancy lease plus all renewal leases to confirm whether 421-a riders were included with those leases. The DRA ruled against landlord after landlord failed to submit the requested records.
