MCI Rent Hike Application Denied as Untimely
LVT Number: #28497
The DRA denied landlord's application for MCI rent hikes based on boiler/burner installation because the application was filed more than two years after the work was completed. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord pointed out that DOB's sign-off for electrical work was dated May 26, 2016. But rent regulations call for an MCI application to be filed within two years after the work is completed, not the date of issuance of any required governmental certificate.
