Nonworking Security Cameras Weren't a Minor Condition
LVT Number: #20585
Tenants complained to the DHCR of a reduction in building-wide services based on nonworking security cameras in public areas of the building. The DRA ruled for tenants and reduced their rents. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that there were only a few nonworking security cameras, that they hadn't worked for at least eight years, and that they duplicated other working cameras in the building. For those reasons, landlord argued that the nonworking cameras were a de minimis--that is, minor--condition.
