Tenants Remained Rent Stabilized After Building's Substantial Rehab
LVT Number: #28376
Landlord asked the DHCR for a finding that its building was exempt from rent stabilization due to substantial rehabilitation. The DRA ruled for landlord in part. Substantial rehabilitation was completed in 2013 after a building fire that resulted in a 2012 DOB vacate order. But all prior tenants who returned to their apartments after the fire remained rent regulated. Landlord appealed and lost. Rent-stabilized tenants of four apartments received vacate orders from HPD and DOB after the fire.
