Kushner Company Fined $210K For False Documents Claiming Its Buildings Had No Rent-Regulated Tenants

The Associated Press reports:

The Kushner family real estate company has been fined $210,000 by New York City regulators following an Associated Press investigation that showed it routinely filed false documents with the city claiming it had no rent-regulated tenants in its buildings when it, in fact, had hundreds. The false documents allowed the company to escape extra scrutiny during construction that watchdog group Housing Rights Initiative has said led to harassment of low-paying, rent-regulated tenants to get them to leave.

The company filed 42 false construction permit applications while still under the direction of Jared Kushner.
