Elevator Upgrade Qualifies as MCI Even If Done to Replace Broken Elevator
LVT Number: #28499
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on elevator upgrading. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant pointed out that the elevator broke in 2015 and wasn't working for six months before landlord replaced it in 2016. But this didn't prevent landlord from obtaining MCI rent hikes where the work qualified as a major capital improvement.
