No MCI Increase for One Rent-Stabilized Apartment in Substantially Rehabbed Building

LVT Number: #30228

Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on installation of a boiler, windows, intercom, mailboxes, chimney, cornice, new roof, pointing, re-piping, sewer line, and painting/iron works. The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. Except for one remaining rent-stabilized apartment, the building was exempt from rent stabilization due to substantial rehabilitation. Under DHCR Operational Bulletin 95-2, landlord therefore wasn't entitled to an MCI rent hike for the one remaining rent-stabilized apartment.
