Tenant Gets No Attorney's Fees in DHCR Rent Overcharge Proceeding
LVT Number: #30975
Rent-stabilized tenant who moved into an apartment in 2010 complained of rent overcharge in 2016. The DRA ruled for tenant in 2018 and ordered landlord to refund $5,384 with triple damages and interest. The DRA then reopened the case for reconsideration and, in December 2019, recalculated the total overcharge to be $9,403 based on application of the fuller triple damages provisions of HSTPA.
