Landlord Cleared Up Mold Condition
LVT Number: #25111
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services due to a mold condition in her apartment. The DRA ruled against tenant and dismissed the complaint. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant argued that HPD had issued violations for mold contamination, the mold reappeared because landlord made only cosmetic repairs and failed to cure the source of the mold contamination, the DHCR's inspection took place shortly after landlord's cosmetic cleanup, and the DRA didn't address tenant's other complaints of surging water, improper painting, and water damage.
