Buildings Are Single Horizontal Multiple Dwelling
LVT Number: 10684
Landlord claimed that it owned two separate adjoining buildings. The Loft Board ruled that the buildings made up a single horizontal multiple dwelling. Landlord appealed and lost. The Loft Board found that the buildings shared a common fire escape, boiler, water heater, sprinkler system, and other common elements. The Loft Board's ruling was supported by the proof presented.
