Landlord Must Fix Tiles and Exterminate Mice
LVT Number: #19909
Tenant complained of a reduction in services. The DRA ruled for tenant after inspection found broken kitchen tiles and mice in tenant's apartment. Landlord later applied for restoration of rent based on restoration of services. Inspection showed that the conditions still existed, so the DRA ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed, claiming that tenant either denied access or didn't correct hazardous or unsanitary conditions in the apartment that prevented the required work from being completed. In response, tenant said he didn't deny access to landlord. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Landlord showed no proof that it had tried to obtain access from tenant. While the DHCR's inspector noted grime and a heavy odor in tenant's apartment, there was no hazardous condition found.
