No First Rent for Adding Backyard Service
LVT Number: 9219
Landlord asked the DHCR if it could charge a first rent for adding a new backyard, as well as a door and staircase for access to the backyard. The DHCR said ''no'' because the improvements didn't substantially alter the outer dimensions of the apartment. But landlord could charge tenant 1/40th of the cost of the improvements.
