This CLE program will impart a clear understanding of the meaning of the "four year rule", which is both a statute of limitations and a limit on review of rent history. The course will also review exceptions carved out by the Grimm case and its progeny, amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code and J51 (Roberts) cases. Lastly, the course will examine the Fair Market Rent appeals.
