DOB Order Finding Elevator Problems Was Issued After Complaint Termination
LVT Number: #31259
Rent-stabilized tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services based on water supply and elevator service. The DRA ruled against tenants after finding that these services were maintained. Tenants appealed and lost. They claimed that the two building elevators were constantly out of service for construction worker use. And, after the DRA denied their complaint, DOB had issued a Cease Use Order for one of the elevators based on stoppage conditions. The DHCR noted that its inspector found that the water supply was being provided to all apartments.
