Effective Date of MCI Rent Hike Based on Landlord's Delay
LVT Number: #24945
The DHCR granted landlord's application for MCI rent hikes. Landlord, which was the managing agent of the holder of unsold shares in a co-op building, filed an Article 78 appeal, challenging the effective date of the rent hikes for four rent-controlled tenants. Landlord filed the MCI application on Oct. 6, 2003. In August 2004, the DRA notified landlord that it had failed to answer a July 21 notice and gave landlord a final chance to respond.
