Lobby in Need of Mopping
LVT Number: 12477
Tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. The DRA ruled for tenants and reduced their rents. Among other things, the DRA found that janitorial service wasn't being provided in the lobby. Landlord appealed, claiming that this was a minor condition that didn't warrant a rent cut. The DHCR ruled for landlord. The DHCR's inspection report stated that janitorial service was maintained in the stairs and the halls, but that the lobby needed mopping. Since the inspection showed that janitorial service was being provided in general, the need for mopping was a minor condition and no rent reduction was warranted.
