MCI Rent Hike Delayed Until Hazardous Violations Corrected
LVT Number: #30042
The DRA granted landlord's MCI rent increase application, based on installation of a new roof and exterior restoration. The DRA set the effective date of the increase as April 1, 2014, which was the first rent payment date after landlord submitted proof that conditions underlying all hazardous Class "C" violations had been corrected.
Landlord and tenants both appealed. Landlord disputed the effective date of the rent increase. Tenants claimed, among other things, that there should be no MCI rent increase based on the C violations.
