Tenant of Previously Controlled Apartment Needn't Pay Increase
LVT Number: 8061
Landlord applied for MCI rent increases. The DRA granted landlord's application. Tenant appealed, claiming she shouldn't have to pay an MCI increase. The DHCR agreed. When the MCI application was filed, the apartment was rent-controlled. When tenant moved in, the apartment became rent-stabilized. Tenant's initial stabilized rent included those services then being provided. So, tenant and all future stabilized tenants were exempt from an additional rent increase for the MCI.
