No IAI Increase Permitted for Molding that Wasn't New

February 26, 2018
LVT Number: #28249

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered landlord to refund $5,490, including interest. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord objected to the DRA's denial of a rent increase for an individual apartment improvement (IAI) consisting of new apartment molding. Tenant had claimed that the molding wasn't replaced. The DHCR noted that landlord hadn't raised any issue about the molding before the DRA.
