Landlord Didn't Remove Enough Violations for MBR Increase
LVT Number: 18446
Landlord filed for 2002–2003 MBR increases. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed, claiming that landlord didn't remove enough violations from the building's records to qualify for the MBR increase. The DHCR ruled for tenant. One rent-impairing violation and seven nonrent-impairing violations were pending against the building on Jan. 1, 2001. To qualify for the MBR increases, landlord needed to repair the rent-impairing violation and six out of the seven nonrent-impairing violations.
