Tenant Who Relocated Within Building at Landlord's Request Remained Rent Stabilized

LVT Number: #30438

Tenant complained that landlord refused to offer her a rent-stabilized renewal lease. The DRA ruled for tenant and directed landlord to give tenant a renewal lease. Landlord appealed and lost. In a separate proceeding, the DHCR had ruled that, although prior landlord had substantially rehabilitated the building, tenant remained rent stabilized. This was because she had lived in one rent-stabilized apartment but relocated to another apartment at prior landlord's request. Tenant's rent-stabilized status followed her to the new apartment in the building.
