Landlord Must Maintain Garage and Minibus Service
LVT Number: 16212
stabilized tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. They said minibus service at the building had been reduced and that there were bumps on the garage floor that were a trip hazard. The DHCR ruled for tenants. Landlord appealed, claiming that the DHCR's decision was arbitrary and unreasonable. The court and appeals court ruled against landlord. Landlord had control over the minibus schedule, so it was responsible for the reduction in service. And landlord wasn't maintaining the garage service properly.
