Tenant's Overcharge Claim Denied with Four-Year Lookback Applied
LVT Number: #30862
Landlord sued to evict loft tenant. The court ruled against landlord and awarded tenant attorney's fees, but also denied tenant's rent overcharge claim. Both sides appealed. The Appellate Term ruled that tenant was entitled to attorney's fees as the prevailing party in the case. But that court denied tenant's appeal of the overcharge denial. Tenant appealed again to the Appellate Division.
