Tenant's Appeal Not Filed on Time
LVT Number: 11445
(Decision submitted by Patti Stone of the Manhattan law firm of Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., attorneys for the landlord.) Landlord applied for high-rent/high-income deregulation of tenant's apartment. The DRA ruled for landlord based on a finding that the rent was $2,000 or more and the household income was greater than $250,000 for two years in a row. More than five months later, tenant mailed a letter to the DHCR asking that the deregulation order be revoked. The DHCR decided to consider tenant's letter as a PAR but ruled that the PAR was untimely since it wasn't filed within 35 days of the date that the DRA order was issued.
