: what will they think of next? click on link below for the whole article.

: Here's what they will think up next:::::

: The 1997 RRRA has a retroactive element called the four year rule, so if the LL files Fraudulent or
: NO Intial rent or yearly rent doucuments and they get caught,
: the DHCR will allow them to admend them
: so there is NO treble damage penalty or overcharge.

Is there any way to circumvent this? I am filing my answer to a non-payment petition and one of my many arguments is rent overcharge. LL filed NO initial rent or yearly documents and willfully overcharged. I am afraid that once he reads the answer that I give to the clerk, his lawyer will in fact RUN down to DHCR and retroactivly file. Do I have to include overcharge in my answer to the clerk, or can I raise it orally at the hearing, giving the lawyer no chance to retro-file?(sounds like a desperate and hinky ploy, I know -but what else can I do?)

Also, I have made my overcharge complaint to DHCR, but isn't it true that they have to inform the LL to get his side of the story before rendering a judgement? What good is it to file the complaint of past overcharge if the LL can easily make it dissapear?
