Pointing Wasn't Done in Connection with New Roof
LVT Number: 15632
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on a new roof installation and related work. The DHCR ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed, claiming that the pointing work and lintel installation landlord had done wasn't done in connection with the roof and wasn't building-wide. The DHCR ruled for tenants. The pointing work was done in the area of six apartments on the top three floors. There was no proof that the pointing and lintel work was done in connection with, and directly related to, the roof installation. The DHCR revoked the MCI rent increase for the cost of the pointing.
