MCI Rent Hike Collectibility, Not Increase Itself, Limited to 6 Percent of Tenant's Rent
LVT Number: #28498
The DRA granted landlord's application for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of new boiler/burners. Rent-stabilized tenant appealed and lost. Tenant argued that the rent increase violated DHCR policy because it exceeded 6 percent of her rent. But the 6 percent limitation policy refers to the collectibility of the rent increase, not the amount of the rent increase itself.
