: I read the new rules on the DHCR website, and the interpretation of them, and one thing remains unclear--what effect, if any, will this have on tenants who have pending DHCR cases?
: I have a pending DHCR rent-reduction case. The DHCR has ordered my services restored. Could the landlord now claim they are "deminimus"?

The rule of law is that new laws are not retroactive unless it says so in the new law.

Of course, these are new administrative rules, not new laws, but the same should apply.

Since DHCR already issued an order in your case, they can't take it back. However, if the landlord fails to comply, or files a PAR, DHCR could use the new rules.

ps: where did you read the Tenant Net interpretation? please post URL for us. thanks.
