Tenant's Appeal of Deregulation Order Terminated Based on Tenant's Death
LVT Number: #29804
Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's rent-stabilized apartment in 2017. The DRA ruled for landlord after tenant failed to respond to two notices of landlord's application, and ordered that tenant's apartment be deregulated when tenant's existing lease expired. Tenant appealed and pointed out that she was unable to complete her response to landlord's application because she was terminally ill. But while tenant's PAR was pending, landlord advised the DHCR that tenant had passed away.
