No Rent Reduction Where Service Restored Before DHCR Inspection
LVT Number: #30980
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in building-wide services based on landlord's failure to collect recyclables from the trash room on each floor. Landlord instead changed its practice by requiring tenants to bring recyclables to the basement. Landlord initially answered that its change wasn't a reduction in services. But within a few months landlord responded further that it had restored trash rooms to each floor of the building. The DRA ruled against tenant and dismissed the complaint.
