Landlord's Parapet Repair Work Didn't Qualify as MCI
LVT Number: #28476
The DRA denied landlord's MCI rent increase application, finding that repairs to balusters, cornices, dentils, and coping stones were repair and maintenance work, not major capital improvements. Landlord appealed and lost. Work was performed only at the building's front facade, mainly at the front facade parapet and adjoining area. No work was done on any of the three other exposed sides of the building. And partial replacement of a parapet doesn't qualify as an MCI.
