Landlord Must Correct Continuous Lack of Hot Water
LVT Number: #30987
Building tenants brought an HP proceeding against landlord, claiming consistent lack of hot water with worsening conditions. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the court limited the matter to conditions alleged to be immediately hazardous and immediately affecting tenants' health and safety. Landlord argued that tenants failed to show that there were HPD violations and none used a thermometer to determine that hot water wasn't being provided. The court ruled for tenants, finding them credible.
