Tenant Claims Landlord Improperly Charged Her More Rent After Fire

April 28, 2017
LVT Number: #27658

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. After a June 2012 fire in her former apartment and six months in a shelter, landlord restored tenant to a different apartment and charged her more rent. The DRA ruled against tenant and found no overcharge because tenant didn’t pay landlord $1 per month for her former apartment after she was vacated. Therefore, she relinquished her rights to the former apartment and there was no overcharge for the new apartment.
