Tenant Wants Rent Reduced by Amount of Concession
LVT Number: 11192
Tenant complained of a rent overcharge. The DRA found that tenant's rent of $745 was in excess of the legal regulated rent of $592. However, there was no overcharge, since tenant paid a concession rent of $550. Tenant appealed, claiming that her $195 rent concession should be deducted from the lawful $550 rent rather than the $745 amount. The DHCR ruled against tenant. Landlord collected no rent overcharge. The concession rent was a separate agreement between landlord and tenant, and the DHCR wouldn't make any ruling on that issue.
