DHCR Disallowed Some Costs Landlord Claimed Were Part of Garage Roof MCI
LVT Number: #28283
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on garage roof improvements. The DRA ruled for landlord in part but disallowed some of landlord's claimed costs. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that painting of the underground garage interior, as well as snaking drains, new sewer trap doors, and Dumpster pads weren't repairs that should have been disallowed. But the DHCR found that painting was cosmetic in nature and didn't qualify as an MCI.
