Tenant Can Withdraw Complaint After Order Issued
LVT Number: 11305
(Decision submitted by Robert H. Gordon of the Manhattan law firm of Shaw and Binder, attorneys for the landlord.) Tenant complained of a reduction in services. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed. Tenant had complained about the same conditions in a prior complaint, which had been dismissed. Tenant didn't appeal the prior order. The DHCR ruled for landlord. In response to landlord's PAR, tenant submitted a letter stating that he and landlord had resolved the issues involved and that he wished to withdraw his complaint. Under current DHCR policy, a tenant can withdraw a complaint even after an order has been issued.
