Rent Reduction Order Doesn't Apply to MCI Buildings
LVT Number: 14295
(Decision submitted by Pamela A. Koplik of the Manhattan law firm of Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., attorneys for the landlord.) Landlord of a building complex applied for MCI rent hikes. The DRA ruled against landlord because there was a rent reduction order in effect based on landlord's failure to maintain required services. Landlord appealed and won. The rent reduction order in question was against a building that wasn't one of those where the MCI was done, even though it was part of the same complex. Landlord's MCI increase application was granted.
