: 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

I think that would be money down the drain. The tenant does not have to hire a lawyer if the LANDLORD loses an Art. 78. The DHCR would defend that. Also, he posted here to get some guidance. Basically you are telling him to get lost.
I can't answer his question, but obviously you can't either. Giving him bad advice to "consult a lawyer" to answer a simple question is not helpful.
