Partial Parapet Wall Replacement Doesn't Qualify as MCI
LVT Number: #30561
The DRA denied landlord's application for MCI rent hikes based on cement, stucco, aluminum capping work on a parapet wall, and aluminum air vents. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that the entire parapet wall was completely replaced and that any repairs made were needed to prevent further damage. But the DHCR noted that partial replacement of parapet walls doesn't satisfy the requirements of an MCI as the work wasn't performed on a building-wide basis.
