In Reply to: Why does everone recommend filing a rent overcharge complaint with DHCR? posted by Hawk on June 22, 1999 at 05:20:11:
: Has nobody bothered to read my past posts on the various options for handling a rent overcharge situation. Filing a complaint with DHCR is the least attractive option. Please be careful about recommending that people file an overcharge complaint with DHCR at least give them all the options.
I wrote 6/21: "do not file a complaint with DHCR: read the messages here from the past 6 or so months" and "Read more about it, do the math,
& note: some lawyers will take on an overcharge case in court on contingency sorta
like a personal injury case. "
Will wrote, 45 minutes later: "I think
an overcharge claim should still be filed with DHCR ASAP...."
You posted your msg after mine, not Will's!
Isaac responded to Will today, after detailing how absurd the new DHCR overcharge forms are: "DHCR entices you to go thru the process, with the lure of "triple damage". Forget it.
Better to hire a lawyer and take your case directly to court."
