Rent Hike Revoked
LVT Number: 11357
Landlord applied to the DHCR for MCI rent increases. The DRA ruled for landlord and approved the rent hikes. Tenants appealed, and the DHCR later revoked the rent increases. Landlord appealed and lost. The appeals court upheld DHCR's final ruling. Tenant complaints and a DHCR investigation showed that the MCIs performed were very limited and unworkmanlike. So it was reasonable for DHCR to revoke the rent increases.
