Engineering Fees and Sump Pump Cost Added to MCI Cost for Elevator Upgrade
LVT Number: #27880
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on elevator upgrading. The DRA ruled for landlord in part but disallowed certain costs associated with plans and specifications by engineering services, staircase patching and painting, elevator protection pads, and replacement of a sump pump. Landlord appealed and won, in part. The DHCR approved the engineering services as part of the MCI cost since the scope of the elevator work involved more complexity than a simple elevator upgrade.
