Landlord Doesn't Prove Building Exempt Due to Substantial Rehab

LVT Number: #30930

Landlord asked the DHCR for a ruling that its building was exempt from rent stabilization due to substantial rehabilitation after Jan. 1, 1974. Landlord claimed that the building's interior was demolished and rebuilt as new between 2008 and 2009, and that 100 percent of the building's systems were replaced. Landlord submitted architectural plans submitted to DOB, a DOB Work Permit and Application Detail, construction photos, cancelled checks, and an engineer's affidavit. The DRA asked landlord to submit either a Certificate of Occupancy or Letter of Completion issued by DOB.
