Landlord Can't Force Premature Loft Board Determination
LVT Number: #31119
Landlord, who owned a building classified as an Interim Multiple Dwelling (IMD) under the Loft Law, sued the Loft Board in connection with Loft Board actions concerning the use and classification of the building. Landlord claimed that the building was a combustible wood-frame structure and that, as a matter of law, it wasn't eligible for residential use or Loft Law coverage. Landlord filed an Article 78 mandamus application seeking to direct its pending decoverage application to the Loft Board for a final order.
