Tenant Improperly Sublet Parking Space
LVT Number: #31051
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge for a garage space only after landlord raised his monthly parking space charge from $112 to $115. Landlord claimed that the parking space wasn't subject to rent stabilization. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $2,196, representing parking space overcharge with triple damages for the period between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2018. Landlord appealed and won, in part. The base date was amended to May 31, 2014.
