Landlord Can Replace Gas Stoves with Electric Stoves
LVT Number: #30396
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to replace gas cooking stoves with electric stoves. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants claimed that landlord intentionally cut off the gas supply, damaged the gas systems including the gas meters, and made a false claim of gas leak to Con Edison in order to force tenants to accept the stove conversion. They also claimed that the new stoves were installed without a DOB permit and were unsightly.
