MCI Increase Granted for New Gas System Despite Six-Month Gas Shut-Off
LVT Number: #31266
Landlord applied to the DHCR for MCI rent hikes based on installation of a new gas system and related construction work, along with intercoms, pointing, and waterproofing. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants argued that they were without gas service for six months or more while the new gas system was being installed. Some tenants said that apartment walls and floors weren't properly refinished as part of the gas system installation.
