New York City tenants should be aware that the old rule that you can only challenge the rent of a rent stabilized apartment going back four years has changed because of this decision by the Court of Appeals (the highest court in New York State): http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2010/2010_07379.htm
That decision affirmed this 2009 decision by the Appellate Division: http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2009/2009_06653.htm
And, that decision affirmed this 2007 decision by the Supreme Court: http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/pdfs/2007/2007_34184.pdf
According to this article http://www.tenant.net/alerts/articles/complaining.html "Complaining about a rent overcharge in New York City" filing a rent overcharge complaint with DHCR is not recommended because it is considered pro-landlord.
