Tenant's Apartment Was Properly Deregulated
LVT Number: #30119
Tenant complained to the DHCR of rent overcharge and improper deregulation of his apartment. The DRA ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. The base date rent charged to prior rent-stabilized tenant was $1,124.66. Landlord was then entitled to a vacancy increase, longevity increase, and individual apartment improvement (IAI) rent increase when another tenant moved into the apartment in 2013. When the complaining tenant moved into the apartment in 2016, the apartment was no longer subject to rent stabilization since the legal rent had crossed the $2,500 deregulation threshold.
