Tenant's Appeal of Deregulation Order Filed Too Late
LVT Number: #25168
In 2005, the NYC Loft Board ruled that tenant's apartment was no longer subject to rent regulation. In 2012, tenant filed an Article 78 mandamus petition seeking: (1) annulment of the 2005 Loft Board order; (2) a new order declaring that the apartment was rent stabilized; and (3) an order that the Loft Board set the initial stabilized rent for the apartment. The court ruled against tenant. If tenant wanted to appeal the 2005 order, he should have filed an Article 78 petition for judicial review within four months.
