MCI Increase Denied Due to Hazardous Violations
LVT Number: #24638
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on various improvements. The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. At the time the DRA issued its order, there were four hazardous "Class C" violations on record for the building with HPD. Landlord submitted no architect or engineer affidavit to the DRA stating that the conditions had been corrected. And the architect's statement submitted with landlord's PAR stated that only two out of the four C violations had been cured. Outstanding hazardous violations bar the granting of MCI rent hikes.
