Landlord Improperly Changed Heat and Hot Water Service
LVT Number: #30880
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services based on changes made to her apartment after a building fire. She claimed that: (a) landlord placed a heating system in front of her kitchen sink and cabinets, preventing the cabinets from fully opening and making it difficult to use the kitchen sink; (b) the kitchen floor was slanted; (c) the bathroom, bedrooms, and living room were decreased in size; (c) bedroom closets were removed; and (d) the tenant was now required to pay for heat and hot water, although not previously required to do so.
