: I just won a PAR filed by my landlord against a rent reduction order for reduced services. The landlord has 60 days to appeal.
: I am already paying a reduced rent, and had he not appealed I could have gotten the retroactive rent reduction in two ways-- by a lump sum payment from the landlord or by deducting it from the rent (which would have meant no rent for a few months).
: Do I have to wait to see if the landlord appeals with an article 78? Would that stay the proceedings?
Assuming that the landlord will not give you a refund, the original rent reduction order probably authorizes you to deduct the retroactive amount from
your rent. I don't see any reason not to go ahead an do that. If the
landlord begins an article 78 proceeding, you should consult a tenant attorney
and do what the attorney says.
