Installation of Thermal Windows and New Compactor
LVT Number: 11509
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of thermal windows and a new compactor. The DHCR ruled for landlord, and tenants appealed. The court and appeals court ruled against tenants. As long as landlord maintained required services at the building, it could collect MCI rent increases for these improvements.
