Tenant's Collectible Rent Frozen by Prior DHCR Rent Reduction Orders
LVT Number: #31273
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge in 2017. The DRA ruled for tenant, and ordered landlord to refund an overcharge with interest but no triple damages since landlord showed there was no willful rent overcharge. Landlord appealed and lost, claiming that the DRA's order was too vague and it couldn't determine the full amount of the overcharge refund.
