Partial Pointing and Waterproofing Work Qualified as MCI
LVT Number: #30567
The DRA granted landlord's MCI rent increase application based on pointing and waterproofing, new intercoms, and associated engineering fees. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants argued that the pointing and waterproofing didn't benefit all tenants of the building since only portions of the facade were replaced. They also claimed that the work wasn't essential for the operation, preservation, and maintenance of the structure.
