Landlord Didn't Provide Stove or Refrigerator to Tenant
LVT Number: #28502
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services because his apartment had no stove or refrigerator. The DRA ruled against tenant, who appealed and won. The DRA found that landlord wasn't required to provide a stove and refrigerator. This was incorrect. DHCR records showed that landlord registered a stove and refrigerator as apartment services during initial registration in 1984, and that building services included cooking fuel. Landlord never filed an application with the DHCR for permission to modify required services.
