No Hot Water
LVT Number: 19331
Tenant complained of a reduction in services based on landlord's failure to maintain hot water. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. New landlord appealed, claiming it didn't know about tenant's complaint. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Landlord should have checked the DHCR's records for pending complaints when it bought the building. The DRA had correctly reduced tenant's rent. Tenant showed that the HPD had issued a hot water violation when tenant filed his complaint.
