State authorities announced today that they’ve restored an impressive 50,000 apartments to rent regulation since 2012.

The apartments that the Tenant Protection Unit began to identify four years ago were all improperly deregulated by landlords. According to the agency, notifying owners who failed to register their units has restored rent control to 50,000 apartments, and resulted in $2.25 million being paid to tenants for overcharged rent.

The unit was also able to inform tenants of rent overcharges that they weren’t previously aware of during that time.
