Landlord Fined $750 for "Second Season" Heat/Hot Water Violation
LVT Number: #30036
HPD sued landlord, seeking civil penalties for failure to provide heat and hot water. Landlord didn't dispute that this was a "second season" violation but claimed that the violation notice was defective. Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) Section 27-2115(k)(ii) requires landlords to restore heat or hot water within 24 hours of affixing of the violation notice. And landlord must pay a $250 fine within 10 days after the violation notice is posted.
