No Immediately Hazardous Violations
LVT Number: 15365
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of new windows, boiler/burner, intercom, elevator upgrading, and pointing. The DRA ruled for landlord, and tenants appealed. They claimed that there were building violations that should have barred the MCI increases. The DHCR ruled against tenants. The violations in question weren't immediately hazardous, were issued after the DRA granted landlord's MCI application, and weren't raised before the DRA. And since the work in question was done 13 years ago, it wouldn't be proper to investigate the violations at this point.
