MCI Increase Granted for Courtyard and Walkways, Including Engineer Costs

LVT Number: #28464

Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on courtyard and walkway resurfacing. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and won, in part. The work qualified as an MCI. The previous courtyard and walkway surfaces were completely removed, and the entire original area within the property lines of the premises was resurfaced with concrete. All tenants had access to the courtyard and walkways. While tenants claimed that the resurfaced walkways were emergency exits, this didn't matter.
