MCI Rent Hike for New Boilers Denied
LVT Number: #30103
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of new boilers. The DRA ruled against landlord because landlord didn't submit a required Certificate to Operate from the NYC Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP). Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that any falure to obtain the required Certificate was due to DEP inaction beyond landlord's control. The DRA gave landlord multiple opportunities over a year-long period to submit the required DEP certificate.
