Landlord Didn't Prove Building Was Substantially Rehabbed
LVT Number: #31270
Landlord asked the DHCR for a ruling that its building was exempt from rent regulation due to substantial rehabilitation in 2008. The DRA ruled against landlord. Landlord spent $24,000 to convert a six-unit SRO building to a four-family dwelling, and DOB issued a new certificate of occupancy (C of O) in 2008. The DRA found that landlord failed to demonstrate that 75 percent of building and apartment systems had been replaced.
