DHCR Prior Opinion on MCI Work Wasn't a Binding Order
LVT Number: #28089
The DRA granted landlord's MCI rent increase application based on repointing of the building facade. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants claimed that landlord didn't comply with the terms of a DHCR prior opinion that landlord had obtained before performing the MCI. The prior opinion required landlord to submit a diagram of the work performed indicating those exposed sides of the building that were resurfaced, and to submit a contractor's statement that all exposed sides were examined prior to performing the work to determine that brick or masonry facing or stucco was necessary.
