DHCR Can Rely on Its Own Inspection Report

LVT Number: #30878

Rent-stabilized tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. They claimed that: (a) the entrance doors were frequently broken; (b) hallways weren't properly lit and had broken tiling; (c) garbage wasn't removed in a timely manner; (d) the staircase had broken railings; (e) the intercom, security system, and elevators were defective; and (f) there was a widespread vermin infestation.

The DRA ruled against tenants, after inspection showed that services were being maintained.
