Removal of Window Security Gates Was a Reduction in Services
LVT Number: #28096
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent after finding that landlord had removed security gates from the apartment's front windows. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord had removed the security gates during a building-wide window replacement project. Landlord claimed that tenant's lease stated that landlord wasn't required to provide security bars.
