Pointing Work Took Three Years to Complete
LVT Number: 14789
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on pointing work. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that the work was done in a piecemeal manner over a three-year period. Landlord appealed, claiming that it made regular payments to the contractor as the work progressed and that the work wasn't piecemeal. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Payments were regular, but the work took three years to complete. And at times there were delays of five or even 14 months without any work being done. So the work was done in a piecemeal manner and didn't qualify as an MCI.
