Mold Remediation Was Done in Unworkmanlike Manner

April 28, 2017
LVT Number: #27654

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services in August 2015 due to mold and mildew in the apartment and needed painting. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced her rent. Landlord appealed and lost. Inspection conducted in April 2016 found mold in the bedroom and bedroom closet. Paint throughout the apartment appeared old and faded. Landlord claimed that tenant had signed off on mold remediation and that the DHCR’s inspection, four months later, shouldn’t be considered since the mold finding was based on a new condition.
