Appeal in L-3585 and T-3818 – 1416 9th Street C and D. This is a petition filed by the landlord for Historically Low Rent (HLR) and capital improvement rent adjustments and for a rent reduction based on a change in housing services. The tenant objected to the petition and filed a counter-petition for rent overcharges. The hearing examiner found that the landlord was entitled to the requested rent adjustments. The examiner also found that the tenant had not been overcharged rent. The tenant appealed the decision. On appeal, staff recommends that the lawful rent ceilings and the amount of the rent adjustments determined by the hearing examiner be modified but that the decision be otherwise affirmed.
