Tenant Claims Overcharge Based on Large Rent Hike More Than Four Years Earlier
LVT Number: #30278
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonpayment of rent. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement in court. Tenant, whose rent was subsidized by the Living in Communities (LINC) program, agreed she owed $227 per month for the months of November 2017 through March 2018. Landlord later asked the court for a judgment and eviction warrant because tenant didn't pay the agreed-upon arrears. Tenant, now represented by an attorney, asked the court to vacate the settlement agreement and permit filing of an amended answer.
