Balcony Railing Replacement Done in Connection with Qualifying MCI
LVT Number: 15510
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on a number of improvements, including balcony railing replacement. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed, claiming that the work didn't qualify as an MCI. The DHCR ruled against tenants. While the balcony railings themselves didn't qualify as an MCI, they were installed in connection with masonry/facade replacement, which was a qualifying MCI. So landlord was entitled to an MCI rent increase for this work.
