Landlord Didn't Challenge Emergency Repair Bill on Time
LVT Number: 12002
HPD placed a repair lien against landlord's building. Landlord appealed this action in court, claiming it was unreasonable. The court and appeals court ruled against landlord. Landlord's appeal wasn't on time. By law, landlord had four months to appeal after receiving HPD's letter advising it of the results of HPD's item-by-item review of landlord's objections to its statement of emergency repair charges. HPD's letter clearly advised landlord that its review procedures had been completed.
