The Devil, Details, and DHCR: dhcr plans to gut rent stabilization

Posted by SamE on May 24, 2000 at 08:59:39:

A hearing on the DHCR plan is scheduled for May 25 at Manhattan
Community College, 199 Chambers Street, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Devil, Details, and DHCR

One proposal shows DHCR's disregard not only for tenants but for the
state's top court. In December, Court of Appeals justice Judith Kaye ruled
that DHCR was dead wrong in strictly applying a 60-day deadline on
tenants who must answer landlord allegations that their rents and incomes
are too high to qualify for rent regulations. Nonetheless, the agency is
proposing exactly that in its revisions.

"The whole thing is just horrible," says attorney Seth Miller, who
represented the tenant in that case. "Even with the Court of Appeals ruling,
DHCR has the balls to say they're going to go ahead with this anyway."
