Three Possible Arguments to Counter a ‘Late’ PAR Dismissal
Filing a petition for administrative review (PAR) with the Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) can be one of the most important dollars-and-cents steps you take. That's especially true if you're using the PAR to appeal a rent-cut order, a rent-overcharge decision, or the denial of a rent hike application. So nothing could be worse than having your PAR dismissed without even being heard, simply because the DHCR says it wasn't filed on time. In some instances, the PAR may actually have been filed on time.
