Pointing and Waterproofing Work Was Sufficient to Qualify as MCI
LVT Number: #24634
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on pointing and masonry work, including scaffold shed and engineering costs. The DRA ruled for landlord and ordered rent increases. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants claimed that the pointing and waterproofing work wasn't building-wide. But landlord complied with DHCR policy that pointing and waterproofing work be comprehensive. Landlord showed that work was done as needed on exposed sides of the building. This was supported by landlord's diagram and signed contractor's statement that all exposed sides of the building were examined prior to the work.
