Tenant's Daughter Was Entitled to Raise Rent Overcharge Claim
LVT Number: #30077
Rent-stabilized tenant's daughter complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant's daughter and ordered landlord to refund $32,695, including interest. Landlord and tenant both appealed and lost. Landlord argued that the daughter didn't have standing to maintain the complaint. But the daughter showed that tenant had died, that she qualified for succession rights, that landlord had given her a renewal lease in her name, and that landlord had accepted rent from her. So the daughter was a successor tenant, and landlord's PAR was dismissed.
