Tenant Claims He Never Got 60-Day Notice
LVT Number: 14822
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment. The DHCR ruled for landlord based on tenant's failure to answer notice of landlord's application within 60 days. Tenant, who was 82, appealed. He claimed that he never got the notice. The DHCR asked the court to send the case back for further consideration. The DHCR thought there might be some question as to whether the notice was properly sent to tenant and wanted to review the facts. The court permitted the DHCR to take the case back for further review.
