Landlord v. Tenant: July 2018
Landlord Failed to Prove Pre-Base Date Preferential Rent
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund an overcharge. The DRA found that, since landlord failed to provide pre-base date rent history records to justify a preferential rent, the authenticity of the higher, legal regulated rent couldn't be confirmed.
