Two Apartments Considered Separate
LVT Number: 15339
Landlord applied in 1999 for high-rent/high-income deregulation of combined apartments 33A and 33J. Tenant claimed that the apartments weren't combined and that the rent for each of the apartments was less than $2,000 per month. The DRA ruled against landlord and dismissed the application. Landlord appealed and lost. In a prior ruling, the DHCR had found that once the passageway between the two apartments was sealed in 1997, they could no longer be considered one apartment.
