Landlord Can Install Telephone Intercom System
LVT Number: #24783
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to modify a required service for rent-stabilized tenants. Landlord sought to change the existing standard intercom system with a telephone-based system. The DRA ruled for landlord on condition that landlord pay for the costs of installing landline telephones in apartments that didn't have them, and that landlord reduce tenants' rents by $15 per month to compensate tenants for the cost of basic landline service.
