Four Tenants Exempted from MCI Increase for Facade Restoration
LVT Number: #30569
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on building exterior restoration, with related consulting work, and terrace/roof replacement. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and won, in part. Tenants claimed that: (a) the exterior restoration was piecemeal; (b) the facade work wasn't building-wide; (c) the DRA didn't address ongoing leaks; (d) the terrace work didn't benefit all tenants; and (e) the cost of the work was excessive.
