Rent Reduction Order Amended to Clarify Conditions Found
LVT Number: #30290
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in apartment services. Tenant claimed that the molding around the apartment entrance door creaked, that molding in the closet was missing, and that the closet door knob was broken. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed, claiming that tenant didn't grant access to make repairs, and that the DRA's order was based in part on conditions not raised in tenant's complaint. Landlord also argued that conditions complained of were de minimis--that is, minor. The DHCR ruled for landlord in part.
