Exterior Restoration Work Done in Unworkmanlike Manner
LVT Number: 17278
(Decision submitted by David S. Hershey-Webb of the Manhattan law firm of Himmeltstein, McConnell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph, attorneys for the tenants.) Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on exterior building restoration. The DRA ruled for landlord, and tenants requested reconsideration. They claimed that the improvement was done in an unworkmanlike manner. The DRA reopened the case and, upon reconsideration, ruled for tenants. An inspection confirmed the tenants' claims. The DRA ruled against landlord and denied any rent hike.
