For some reason, the DHCR link that Anna gave didn't work. Here's a direct link to DHCR Fact Sheet #16, from TenantNet:

: : 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.
