Defective Windows Installed
LVT Number: 16580
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of new windows building wide. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed and lost. The windows that landlord installed were defective. So the DHCR's decision that the installation wasn't a major capital improvement to the building was reasonable.
