Yes, the legal costs of pursuing an overcharge case in court are a major reason many tenants turn to DHCR. If you are going to take that route, please file your overcharge as soon as possible, given the four-year rule barring examination of the rental history beyond that time. It will get your complaint on the record, even if you change your mind on tactics and take it to court later on.
You don't have to discuss it with your landlord, contrary to what the DHCR form implies: just cross out that section. If you don't have all the canceled checks and receipts they ask for, don't hold up your complaint for that.
