Tenant Who Didn't Sign Complaint Can't File Appeal
LVT Number: 9212
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of reduced services, and the DRA ordered a rent cut for all tenants in the building. Landlord appealed, and the order was changed to affect only rent-stabilized tenants because no rent-controlled tenants had signed the complaint. Rent-controlled tenant appealed, asking the DHCR to apply the rent cut to rent-controlled tenants as well. Tenant loses because she hadn't signed the original complaint. She wasn't a party to the prior proceeding, so she can't appeal it.
