DHCR Relies on HPD Records to Find Heat Not Provided to Tenant
LVT Number: #30998
Rent-stabilized tenant complained to the DHCR of a reduction in required services based on no heat. HPD records showed a violation had been issued for inadequate heat throughout the building. The DRA asked landlord to show if the HPD violation had been cured. Landlord argued that the violation was still outstanding but applied only to a different apartment, not tenant's apartment. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent.
