Cracked and Missing Tiles in Public Areas
LVT Number: 11387
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) Tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. The DRA ruled for tenants and reduced their rents based on cracked and missing tiles in public areas of the building. Landlord appealed. The DHCR ruled for landlord and revoked the rent cuts. The condition was minor and didn't warrant a rent reduction under DHCR policy.
