Public Area Window Conditions Weren't Minor
LVT Number: #30606
Rent-stabilized tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. Tenants claimed that windows in the hallways, staircase landings, and recycling rooms needed repairs or adjustments. Landlord claimed that all windows were properly functioning. The DRA ruled for tenants and reduced their rents. Landlord later applied for rent restoration based on restoration of services. The DRA ruled for landlord in part. Landlord appealed and lost. The DHCR's inspector found that some windows had been repaired, but not others.
