MCI Increase Granted for Elevator Modernization
LVT Number: #29923
The DRA approved landlord's MCI rent increase application based on elevator modernization. Tenants appealed and lost. They claimed that a prior MCI rent increase was granted for an elevator upgrade within the last 25 years and that the modernization was needed due to landlord's failure to maintain the elevators. Tenants also complained that the cost of a handicap lift elevator served only the commercial space in the building and was improperly included in the MCI cost.
