NYC landlords score victory in courts in rent stabilization case

The New York Appeals court has confirmed that a landlord who deregulated an apartment back in 2004 did so correctly. The case had to do with the 20% vacancy allowance and how it is applied. The apartment was deregulated after applying the 20% vacancy allowance but a lower court had said the rent paid by the previous tenant needs to exceed the rent stabilization threshold. Previously, the court system had awarded the tenant over $100k in overcharged rent and that decision was vacated.
