: i live in manhattan in a 100 year old building. the stabilization status is being disputed right now. five of the six units in the building are on the same docket (assigned in early april) and are awaiting word from dhcr. has anyone out there had any luck with rent overcharge PARs? how long did it take dhcr to reach a decision? and for those of you who won--how was payment settled? did and landlords try to claim bankrupcy? our landlord has several rental buildings, a comedy club and a night club. but they may all be operated as separate l.l.c.'s as my building is. will this stop the courts from putting a lein on their other properties?
: thanks for any help.

Are you in the middle of a PAR now? Not clear from the posting.
Anyway, you have a wait in front of you. I had a reduction of services PAR that took five YEARS to resolve!!!!! And the fight still isn't over, as the rent reduction resulting from the reduction of services is now on appeal.
One possibly good note is that the DHCR seems to be moving a tad faster than they used to. My latest battle seems to be moving swifter than the previous one. But I may eat my words.
One question I can't answer that maybe somebody out there can address--if you move out in the middle of one of these PARs, when it involves a rent issue from reduction of services or something else in the past, does it affect the way the case is decided? I have no plans to move out, but there are quite a few bucks at stake so I was wondering. Another is a concern raised by some postings I've seen-- is there some kind of blacklist for DHCR-filers like us???
