Client Building Exempt from Rent Stabilization Regulation

A tenant filed a complaint with the DHCR claiming that the building in which she resided should be subject to rent regulations and, consequently, Landlord was required to offer tenant a renewal lease with Guideline Board increases.

Our client filed a Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) to substantiate its long standing position that the building is not subject to rent regulation. Section 2520.11 of the Rent Stabilization Code provides for exception to regulation whenever buildings have been substantially rehabilitated after January 1, 1974 and a new Certificate of Occupancy is issued.

Papers evidencing a complete interior demolition and a substantial renovation of the building’s systems, completed in 1993, were submitted.

The District Rent Administrator concluded that the building has been substantially rehabilitated and is therefore exempt from regulation. To read the Order and Determination, click here.
