MCI Increase Revoked Because Penthouse Roofs Not Replaced
LVT Number: #28544
(Decision submitted by David Hershey-Webb of the Manhattan law firm of Himmelstein, McConell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph, LLP, attorneys for the tenants.)
The DRA granted landlord's application for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new roof and elevator upgrading. Landlord and tenants both appealed. Landlord claimed that certain items the DRA found ineligible qualified for inclusion in the MCI rent increase. Tenants claimed that the entire roof system wasn't replaced.
