Unit Rented for $825 per Month After Super Vacated
LVT Number: 16343
Landlord asked the DHCR if an apartment became deregulated after it was exempt for building super occupancy for more than four years. Landlord charged new tenant $825, but claimed the market rent for the apartment was over $2,000 per month. In an opinion letter, the DHCR said that the apartment wasn't deregulated. Landlord clearly was entitled to charge a first rent after the super moved out. But since the rent landlord charged and tenant paid was below $2,000 per month, the apartment was rent stabilized.
