: In 1999 a PAR review awarded me a substantial amount of money due to a rent overcharge. Based on that PAR review, I have been getting a rent offset since last summer. My current lease expires 7/31/00. The offset will not be totally paid off until 09/00. I need to move before my lease expires (before the offset is completed). Can anyone help with several questions?

:(1) Will my landlord be required to pay the remaining offset monies due if I move in the midst of the offset?


: 2) If yes, how quickly must they comply? (3) If they refuse to pay, what are my options?

file a judgment, put a lien on their property, in short: you own them.

: 4) Are there any DHCR guidelines for this situation? Thanks for any assistance.

read DHCR Fact Sheet #16 to start.
