I'm a little confused, because there seem to be two separate and distinct issues here--failure to make repairs (which can result in a rent rollback) and loss of an effort to deregulate an apartment. Can you clarify?
It takes a long time to resolve DHCR cases. That much I do know. However, was your rent rolled back? It should say so in the papers. If so, you are authorized to reduce the rent immediately.

: I recently received a letter from the DHCR saying that our landlord had lost his appeal to make the rent non-stabilized. He apparently didn't make the necessary repairs. When we signed the lease he had "markered" out the bottom portion of the lease which addressed rent stabilization. He said it was not rent stabilized. We called the DHCR and filed a grievance for the overcharge. They have asssigned a docket number to it and a casworker,apparently. (Forgive my lack of exact terminology in the description)
: My question is how long does this procedure usually take? Has anybody else gone throough this scenario? Anything we can do to speed the process?
: Any help appreciated...
