Landlord's MCI Application Didn't Detail Work on Balconies and Balustrades
LVT Number: #27269
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on balcony and balustrades restoration, lintel replacement, construction of a sidewalk bridge and engineering services. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that the work done was repairs and maintenance, and not an MCI. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord didn’t submit a contract or detailed explanation or description of the work done on the balconies, balustrades, and lintels. The work described by landlord was either too general or too vague to make a finding that it was an MCI.
