Complaints About Elevator Upgrades Don't Bar MCI Rent Hikes
LVT Number: #29805
Landlord applied to the DHCR for MCI rent hikes based on elevator upgrading. The DRA ruled for landlord, and tenants appealed. Tenants claimed that the new elevators were defective and that DOB had issued at least 20 elevator violations since the new elevators were installed, four of which were still pending. Tenants also claimed that there were many incidents of the new elevators shaking and being stuck and out of service, and that landlord didn't provide electrical sign-offs for the elevators.
