Landlord sues top Corcoran broker over rent-stabilized Park Avenue pad

December 20, 2010 09:56AM

Corcoran Group broker Carol Cohen has been sued by her landlord for allegedly lying about her income to keep the rent from rising at her stabilized Park Avenue apartment, the Post reported. The senior vice president, who, with partner Debra Grubman (The Real Deal’s all-around best broker of 2010), helped sell movie producer Joe Roth’s $17.75 Million One Beacon Court penthouse this year and designer Vera Wang’s $33.6 Million Park Avenue apartment in 2008, currently pays $3,060 per month for her two-bedroom pad at 737 Park Avenue. Her landlord, Katz 737, has been trying to de-regulate the unit since 2004, but Cohen and her husband claimed on state forms to have earned less than $175,000 combined in each of the past two years. Katz, who filed suit in Manhattan Supreme Court last week, wants $7,500 per month for the two-bedroom home, where the couple has lived since 1989. Cohen declined to comment to the Post. [Post]
