New Fuel Tank
LVT Number: 15619
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new fuel tank in 2000. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed, claiming that they paid for a new boiler in 1988 and their rents were never reduced after the boiler was paid off. The DHCR ruled against tenants. Whether or not landlord installed a boiler in 1988 was irrelevant to the current MCI application. MCI rent increases also are permanent.
