Installation Didn't Benefit Commercial Tenants
LVT Number: 14291
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new boiler. The DRA ruled for landlord, but reduced the amount of rent increases for two rent-stabilized tenants because there was also a commercial tenant in the building. Landlord appealed and showed that the commercial tenant had its own boiler. The DHCR ruled for landlord. No reduction of the MCI rent increase was justified, because the commercial tenant didn't benefit from the MCI.
