Landlord Fined for Terrace Wall Cracks and Window Disrepair
LVT Number: #30408
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to maintain a building in a safe condition, after its inspector found cracks in an exterior terrace wall, disrepair around the window, and framing that appeared to make an impression through the drywall in an apartment living room area. Landlord claimed that she'd been trying to correct the violation but that the third-floor tenant refused access. The ALJ allowed landlord to reduce the Class 1 designation of the charge to Class 2 since photographs didn't show an immediately hazardous condition.
