MCI Granted for CCTV Security System
LVT Number: #25833
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new CCTV security system, four wooden entrance doors, new windows and lintels, a sidewalk bridge, and engineer fees in connection with the window installation. The DRA ruled for landlord in part but disallowed the cost of the entrance doors and consulting engineer fees. Tenants appealed, claiming that the useful life of the prior security camera system hadn't expired. Tenants also claimed that the prior landlord had previously replaced windows in many renovated apartments. The DHCR ruled against tenants.
