Tenants Authorized Tenant Organization to File Complaints for Them
LVT Number: #30954
Various rent-stabilized tenants complained of reductions of service in their apartments. The DRA ruled on 13 cases, dismissing 11 and reducing the rents of two tenants based on apartment conditions. Landlord appealed and claimed that a tenant organization that filed complaints for the tenants involved wasn't authorized to do so. The DHCR ruled against landlord, who then filed an Article 78 court appeal, claiming the DHCR's decision was arbitrary and unreasonable.
