Elevators Were Operative
LVT Number: 11796
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) complained of a reduction in building-wide services. The DRA ruled for tenants, finding that the elevator was inoperative. Landlord appealed. The DHCR ruled for landlord. There had been DOB elevator violations at the building. But DOB records showed that landlord had corrected the elevator conditions and that the elevators were operative before the DRA's order was issued. The DHCR also noted that, generally, elevator matters were best decided by DOB, although the DHCR could determine the simple question of whether an elevator was operative.
