Tenant Repeatedly Refused to Verify Income
LVT Number: #28091
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2010, when tenant's legal rent was $2,000 or more and sought verification of whether tenant's household income was over $175,000 per year in 2008 and 2009. In 2014, the DRA ruled for landlord based on tenant's default. Tenant appealed, and the case was reopened in 2015 because tenant claimed he didn't receive the DRA's notices concerning landlord's application and the DHCR couldn't verify whether the notices were sent.
