Drainage Work Doesn't Qualify
LVT Number: 16518
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on drainage work. The DRA ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed, claiming that the drainage work was part of the cost of qualifying sidewalk and repaving work. The DHCR ruled against landlord. The drainage work was completed five months before the other work was begun and so wasn't connected.
