Landlord Doesn't Prove Building Was Substantially Rehabilitated
LVT Number: #24411
Landlord asked the DHCR to determine whether its building was exempt from rent stabilization due to substantial rehabilitation. The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. Landlord failed to submit all the documentation requested by the DRA to prove its claim. In particular, landlord submitted no architect's or general contractor's affidavit or letter of completion. And no Certificate of Occupancy was issued by DOB for the completed work because the plans indicated that there was no change in occupancy, site, and egress.
