In Reply to: Rent Overcharge posted by Steve on February 28, 2000 at 14:01:58:
To Clarify: My landlord lost his appeal because he did not make the required improvements to the building for it to qualify as a non-rent stabilized building.
The rent wasn't rolled back. The Agency doesn't have any record of what the previous stabilized price was. Or else we may have just paid that and put the remainder in escrow until this is settled.
Initial post: 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...
