Pointing Not Comprehensive
LVT Number: #24859
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a new roof, bulkhead, and masonry work including pointing and waterproofing. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that the work wasn't performed as part of a consecutively timed project. Landlord appealed and lost. Work of a piecemeal nature or ordinary repair and maintenance doesn't qualify as an MCI. The work must be performed in a manner so that when it's completed the building remains free from water seepage for a reasonable period of time.
