Landlord Can Replace Metal Key Lock with Key Fob System

LVT Number: #28467

Landlord applied for permission to replace a traditional metal key lock at a rent-stabilized building entrance with a magnetic lock and key fob locking system. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant objected to certain conditions listed in the order approving the service modification. The DHCR found that a key card security system replacing a traditional key-lock system doesn't represent a reduction in building-wide services, a violation of privacy rights, or an unauthorized change in tenant's rent-stabilized lease.
