New Oil Tank Qualifies
LVT Number: 17861
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new oil tank. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed, claiming that landlord shouldn't get rent hikes because the work was done by prior landlord. The DHCR ruled against tenant. The oil tank qualified as an MCI. New landlord had the right to collect the MCI rent hike.
