Renovations Didn't Benefit Tenants
LVT Number: 17923
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on building renovations. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed and lost. An inspection showed that the renovations didn't benefit tenants. So the DHCR reasonably denied landlord's application.
