Landlord Can Remove Apartment's Obsolete Rear-Entry Door
LVT Number: #33037
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to remove an obsolete non-fireproof rear entry door and frame from tenant's apartment. The DRA ruled for landlord, but later issued another order modifying the decision to provide for a permanent 3 percent rent reduction, effective from the date that the door service was discontinued. Tenant appealed but later asked the DHCR to withdraw his PAR. The DHCR granted the request, submitted by tenant's attorney. Submitted with the request was a court stipulation of settlement by which tenant agreed to discontinue any and all other proceedings regarding the substance of the matter before the DHCR.
