Tenant in Substantially Rehabbed Building Transferred at Landlord's Request
LVT Number: #29751
Landlord asked the DHCR for a ruling that its building was exempt from rent regulation based on substantial rehabilitation. The DRA ruled for landlord, finding that the building was formerly a commercial building that was altered to 24 residential units. Since the apartments were all new installations, the DHCR's general requirement that an owner must replace 75 percent of building and apartment systems to qualify for substantial rehabilitation didn't apply. Tenant appealed and won, in part.
