Landlord Installed Exposed Gas Pipes in Tenant's Living Room
LVT Number: #30984
Rent-stabilized tenant complained to the DHCR of a reduction in required services based on a number of conditions. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced her rent, after inspection found that tenant's intercom was inoperable; living room windows were misaligned and difficult to open, close, and lock properly; and the installation of new gas pipes in the living room was unworkmanlike. The DHCR's inspector found that gas pipes protruded toward the middle of the living room, decreasing full use of that room.
