Protective Covering on Walls Around Building Entrance
LVT Number: 17765
Tenant complained of a reduction in building-wide services based on landlord's placement of a protective covering around the building's entrance walls. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding that the protective covering around the walls was a minor condition. Tenant appealed and lost. The protective covering was placed around entrance walls temporarily while the building was being renovated. There was no proof that it had a major impact on tenant's use and enjoyment of the premises. At most, it merely caused the front of the building to have an unpleasant appearance.
