1. I believe that even the recent Missionary Sisters ruling held there should be a reason and time limit for preferential rent. Was a reason given? If not, you should state this in your overcharge complaint.
2. Did any of the previous tenants within four years receive a preferential rent? I haven't seen this litigated, but the definition of preferential rent in the newly amended RSC seems to suggest that the rent history of a tenant with a preferential rent can be examined up to four years before that tenant's vacancy, not the current tenant's complaint. May not help you, but interesting.
3. There's no obligation for you to discuss your overcharge complaint with your managing agent or landlord, regardless of what it says on the DHCR form. You can just cross it out. Don't waste time and money on that, especially if you're nearing a crucial date because of the four-year rule. Don't inadvertently give them any ammunition to use against you.
